Destination Nostrand!

From the folks at Nostrand Park:

Nostrand Park is excited to announce the launch of its new pilot program, Destination Nostrand, intended to beautify, promote, enliven, and enhance Nostrand Avenue in Crown Heights, Brooklyn:

In collaboration with Brooklyn-based arc
hitecture firm, VAMOS Architects, and Brooklyn-based event marketing company Masai Marketing, we have designed a series of temporary pop-up installations that will showcase vacant commercial spaces along Nostrand - the concept is called "Destination Nostrand". Funding is provided by a Community Development Block Grant from NYC Dept. of Small Business Services. Design support was provided by desigNYC.

LAUNCHING: 11am - JUNE 25th at 685 Nostrand Avenue, Brooklyn


  1. ...nothing makes me happier than seeing a vacant storefront turned into something that brings jobs, (ahem) legal merchandise and local control to the 'hood.

    Nice job building a team and getting the NYC block grant, you deserved it NP!

  2. Thanks for the shout out Nick! Not sure if you so, but we also mentioned ILFA in our DN brochure:
