Last Friday on September 21, three locations in the City of Newburgh participated in Park(ing) Day – an annual event where citizens, artists, and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places.

Panja, Blacc Vanilla and the corner of Clark and Broadway were the locations taking part. We all had a fun time and had interesting conversations with visitors. Shout out to NBPD who came by with barricades!

Yesterday new benches were being installed at Safe Harbors Green Park. This is a welcome sight as the park is becoming very popular. This summer a salsa event drew over 600 visitors to the park. People need someplace to sit when they aren’t dancing. The park has become such a wonderful amenity to the community. Next summer is bound to be an amazing year!

Come hang out with us! Providing temporary public open space . . . one parking spot at a time. Join us in Newburgh as we create public spaces for all to share.

Locations:
Broadway & Clark
Panja – 15 Liberty St
Blacc Vanilla – 197 South St

Time: 12-4pm

PARK(ing) Day is an annual open-source global event where citizens, artists, and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. The project began in 2005 when Rebar, a San Francisco art and design studio, converted a single metered parking space into a temporary public park in downtown San Francisco. Since 2005, PARK(ing) Day has evolved into a global movement, with organizations and individuals (operating independently of Rebar but following an established set of guidelines) creating new forms of temporary public space in urban contexts around the world.

The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat … at least until the meter runs out!

“Every few years the City of Newburgh Fire Department falls prey to budget cuts on the annual city budget. It is yet to be determined if our firefighters will lose their jobs. Our local department is at the mercy of the SAFER GRANT being renewed. To keep morale lifted and community support of the men, women and dog who make up the Newburgh Fire Department; we have created a FIREFIGHTERS BALL. An evening of dinner, dancing, auctions and admission to Motorcyclepdia Museum. MaryKay Messenger of the West Point Band will be starting off the evening singing and Hudson Valley artist Decora will be performing accompanied by DJ H20. Ticket prices are $50 per person and all additional proceeds will go to our local fire department. The funds will be used towards offsetting costs for future equipment purchases.
