WoW was in Sara D. Roosevelt Park on Thursday afternoon, July 28th. We had a lot of interest from kids and teenagers in the park, so much so that a two year old godzilla attacked WoW, we managed to save the city though.
Three youth from CAAAV:Organizing Asian Communities helped gather up participants and did outreach about the developments happening on the waterfront. WoW will next be traveling back to the East River Waterfront this Friday evening.
On Friday July 15th the Waterfront on Wheels joined up with the Lower East Side Ecology Center’s regular Fishing Clinics in East River Park. WoW had a friend in the Ecology Center’s heavy duty fishing tricycle, and the crowd really was interested in the waterfront redevelopment. A lot of people passing through the park stopped to learn more as well. A great way to end the week. WoW will be at another Ecology Center Fishing Clinic on Friday August 5th from 5pm-7pm. We’ll be in East River Park on the water near the 10th Street entrance. Come on by after work! If you’d also like to register for the Ecology Center’s fishing Clinic, learn more here!
On Thursday July 14th, the Waterfront on Wheels was in it’s natural habitat, the East River Waterfront. The Local Spokes Youth Ambassador’s used it to envision a new park for Pier 42, at Pier 42. The Youth Ambassador’s are learning all about the built environment and public spaces in the Lower East Side this week to help understand how they can be part of the conversation about the future of biking in our neighborhoods.
