Ask any Greenpointer what they like best about living here, and waterfront access will come up 9 times out of 10.

Transmitter Park, our fabulous East River adjacent park, is celebrating 10 years in the neighborhood. And what better way to celebrate than with a day of community-oriented events?

Kick-off September 10 with a reception at the park, which will run from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The event, hosted by the NYC Parks Department and Friends of WNYC Transmitter Park, will provide a look back at a decade of the park and recount the efforts and activism it took to bring it to life. RSVP here.

Stick around with a block party hosted by North Brooklyn Parks Alliance and Greenery Unlimited, alongside our local elected officials Assemblymember Emily Gallagher, and Council Member Lincoln Restler. 

Expect family-friendly activities, live music, and food from nearby restaurants. Steve Wasterval, famous for his mini-paintings of Greenpoint, will lead one of his signature art scavenger hunts. 


The event is good news for supporters of our neighborhood’s Open Streets program. According to the North Brooklyn Parks Alliance Instagram page, “The event also launches this block of Greenpoint Ave as the neighborhood’s newest open street in partnership with the NYC Department of Transportation (@nyc_dot) The open street will be in effect on weekends from September 10 – November 3, 2022 and help ensure that pedestrians have safe access to Transmitter!”

The event will occur on September 10 from 2 – 7 p.m. RSVP here.
