Fort Greene is the best neighborhood: At the center of the greatest of what New York City has to offer, yet small and cozy enough to give us a real village and community vibe.
But at a time where relationships are increasingly global and virtual, we've lost what it means to belong to a local community and build relationships with our neighbors.
We want to get to know people who live around us, exchange smiles in the street, and decide to hang out at the last minute just because we feel like it. We want to help each other out, discover our hood together, and simply have fun.
This group aspires to meet up once a month to make the most of whatever Fort Greene has to offer - go see a performance at BAM, grab a beer after work, have a picnic in the park in summer, meet for brunch, volunteer to help the community, or go on adventures together.
If you want to get to know the people in your neighborhood, build a community, or have ideas about fun things you would like to try with a group - then you should join us!
Walk, walk, talk (or not). Wear comfortable shoes and bring anything you need for a brisk 2- hour walk.
We'll walk to Dumbo and back, then those who feel like it can have a bite afterwards.
This is the first of a series of Sunday walks that will happen at least once a month. Each time we'll go in a different direction but we'll always start and end in Fort Greene.
Hope to see you there!
