Williamsburg Walks is happening this weekend and will have a bunch of FREE SOD to give away again this year. It will be ready for pick up this Sunday, June 14 on Bedford Ave from North 5th- 7th and North 9th-North 11th.
Arrive around 5:30PM to start packing it up. There will be no thru traffic on Bedford so parking will only be available at one of the cross street intersections.

Every summer, the activity in McCarren Park and the surrounding area gets a bit amplified, not just with music but with a variety of Northside Festival related revelry, including what they refer to as “NYC’s Biggest Tech Party.” Now in its fourth year, Northside Innovation returns with the Expo as well as the Conference this Thursday and Friday (6/11-12).
These are two full days packed with keynotes, fireside chats, panels, workshops, pitch competitions, and networking opportunities, so you’ll want to plan ahead and create your schedule beforehand. The Northside site has a comprehensive scheduling tool but we recommend that you download the more user friendly App instead.
