‘Summer Space’ Returns to Montague Street

For three Sundays in September, cars will be banned from Montague Street between Clinton and Hicks streets as the Summer Space program will once again turn the area into a pedestrian plaza, with outdoor seating and themed activities.

Organized by the Montague Street BID, the first week, September 13th will be focused on food, featuring discounts and samples from more than a dozen Montague Street eateries. September 20th will be dedicated to mind and body, with free outdoor yoga lessons and massages. Finally, September 27th will focus on games, with outdoor hula-hooping and free skateboard lessons. The events will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

    Imagine how much those shepherd’s crook light posts will enhance this event!

    “September 20th will be dedicated to mind and body, with free outdoor yoga lessons and massages.”

    Massages by Blue Diamond Health Center might certainly make this thing worthwhile ;)

    The 27th is Rosh Hashana – poor planning for this kind of thing.

    Rosh Hashana is actually Sept. 18-20 …

    the design of the proposed streetlights are too fancy for shepherds, which is why they are called bishop’s crooks not shepherd crooks. Monatgue Street has had them for years. Atlantic Avenue has had them for years. Clinton Street in Cobble Hill and Smith Street in Bourum Hill has had them for years. Ditmas Park and Prospect Park South put them in last year. Stuyvesant Heights in Bedford Stuyvesant had them installed about five years ago. Just FYI.

    I was just saying yesterday that they didn’t close down the streets this summer. I don’t see what’s to gain. Montague St. functions as public space as it is.

    I hope they install a Naked Cowboy for the occasion.

    @ In The Heights: I think you mean that the 27th is Yom Kippur. Technically, does it matter, though? The Montague St. games end at 5 PM, which is before sundown, when the solemnity of Yom Kippur officially begins.
