So far, Summer Space Event is Car-Free but Quiet

Today and next Sunday, Montague Street between Clinton and Hicks, is closed off to vehicles for the annual Summer Space pedestrian plaza event. Local arts groups and non-profits offer the community free activities and events, and Montague businesses hold sidewalk sales and promotions. The weather seems to have put a damper on things so far, as the street has been fairly quiet. Perhaps pedestrians are engrossed at the Brooklyn Book Fair, just a few blocks away?

Next Sunday, September 19th, will be family and games centered– filled with free health and fitness classes from Dodge YMCA, a neighborhood dog show from the Brooklyn Heights Association, and fun and games like chalk art, bubbles, and hula hoops. Maybe next weekend the weather will offer a better outdoor event environment.

    Stinks that rain washed away the event and that the Book Fair drew the pedestrian base, but I’m still glad events like this happen in the neighborhood. It’s only when the cars aren’t parked there do you truly realize how much space we’re giving up to store empty vehicles. I prefer it when that space is made for people to enjoy.
