In Fort Greene/Clinton Hill, a Park on a Park(ing) Spot

On Friday, September 17, 2010, Park(ing) Day NYC took over parking spots all over the city to show what a few feet of public space, colorful imagination and community collaboration can offer. In the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, Gray’s Studio Café, Gnarly Vines wine shop and the Myrtle Avenue Revitalization Project teamed up to create an outdoor patio lounge and a face-painting station for the community. Studies show that a new look for parking spaces can boost the health of urban community members. Park(ing) Day surely brought a lot of merriment and community interaction to Myrtle Avenue.
