Sorry to not be writing so diligently, but a whole lotta stuff has been going on here in our tiny office. We are now officially in our new office which is so quite beautiful! I am currently watching people admire it from the outside which is great because we could use a little love.
The month of June is pretty wild since we are in the middle of our three street closings for Meet the Streets. The first, NYC Street Festival of Young Artists & Leaders produced by Downtown Art, was a great success and everyone had a great time. The second, ART Meets the Street, started off great, but was unfortunately rained out. However, Agrupación Lubola Macú and Tambores de Nueva York (presented by Teatro IATI) refused to be deterred by the rain and decided to have an impromptu parade complete with painted dancing women. Check out the Media page on the Fourth Arts Block website and you will find some awesome Meet the Street photos.
We have also been plugging away at planning Pride Goes East with the Lower East Side Business Improvement District. We are so excited because not only are we going to celebrate all over the Lower East Side and East Village, we're going to do it with Sarah Palin, pedi-cabs, shopping deals, theater, and a kickin after-party. You definitely don't want to miss out on the full week of Pride happenings, so get the low-down and we'll see you around the block.
More to come on the way!!! Thanks for reading
