This Saturday, The NEW New York Green Block Party, we have packed schedule of green living and learning. From yoga to solar car crafts to green building tours, we have fun activities all day! Details below, and more about the day’s events on our schedule page.
YOGA on the Roof
Join Hosh Yoga and Go Yoga for two incredible rooftop yoga experiences Saturday, Oct 1st. at 9am (with Hosh Yoga) and again at 1pm (with Go Yoga). Enjoy the view from 34 Berry’s roof terrace while you challenge your body and mind to relax with some of Brooklyn’s finest yoga instructors.
Meet at the corner of Berry and N.11th 15 minutes before class. Please bring a mat if you can!
Solar Car Crafts
Last year we had a lot of fun at the block party, and we think the 1,500 people who came also had fun… but no one had more fun than the kids at the solar car crafts table. This project is great for kids because it is easy to do and has big reward – a car that moves when it’s in the sun and stops immediately in the shadows. What better way to demonstrate to them that the sun can give us power?
We will be building solar cars with kids at noon and at 4pm. The cost of the craft is $5/kid – each kid makes one car.
NYC Green Buildings Open House
Since 2003, GreenHomeNYC has been organizing tours of NYC’s green buildings. This Saturday we have a guided tour of three buildings in Williamsburg plus coordinated open houses with buildings across the city. For more information, see the NYC Green Buildings Open House tour schedule.
