We love participating in the Northside Festival Block Party every year. It gives us the chance to connect with our community and visitors from all over NYC - we met folks from the Bronx, native Williamsburgers, and people from everywhere in between and beyond.
#AFinBK frequent-flyer (and Soho newbie) Jaima has taught us that the best way to get to know your neighborhood is to draw it – which is exactly what he did this weekend at our booth on Bedford Ave. After free-handing the neighborhood as inspiration came to him, Jaima invited passers-by to help him color in his designs.
Despite the blazing summer heat, there's nothing quite as cool as participating in some good ol' community art-making. You can help us finish coloring in the mural this upcoming weekend at #AFinBK. Once it's done, we'll display it in the market for everyone to see.
In the meantime, take a look at photos from the Block Party on our Facebook page - and feel free to tag if you make a guest appearance in any of them!
