Imagining the LES: Creating Community

November 3, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Saturday, November 3
2pm-5pm

Grand Street Settlement at the Frances Goldin Senior Apartments, enter at 168 Broome St

SPARC and Below the Grid Lab will host a day of activities to celebrate the past, present, and future of the SPURA community (now renamed Essex Crossing). Fifty years ago a vibrant community of multi-racial/ethnic residents and the tenement buildings they inhabited was destroyed by Urban Renewal. Now a new community of mixed income buildings, including 500 affordable apartments, is rising from these empty lots. This event attempts to begin to knit together the old and new and imagine a strong vision of a more equitable and just neighborhood..
