  • PARK(ing) Day

    WHEN: Thursday, September 17, 2020 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

    When: Thursday, September 17, 2:00pm-6:00 pm
    Location: West End Avenue between 88-95th Streets 

    PARK(ing) Day is an annual international event where citizens, artists, and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into temporary miniature parks, or parklets. The mission of the event is to call attention to the importance of urban open space, generate a dialogue about landscape architecture and the benefits of public green space, and improving the quality of urban human habitat.  This year the APA Transportation Committee is teaming up with an extraordinarily diverse group of partners to take over the already open street of West End Avenue. We will be taking over not just parking spaces but at least 5 whole BLOCKS! Activities and stations will be dispersed to allow for proper physical distancing but will be connected with a common goal – to celebrate streets for people and connections. We need to collectively think of new ways to adapt our street infrastructure and public space for today and tomorrow’s needs.

    Join us on September 17 to share ideas for re-envisioning our street and providing connections with the people who use these public spaces. If you would like be a volunteer for PARK(ing) Day, please sign-up at the link HERE.

  • Transportation Scavenger Hunt

    WHEN: Saturday, October 26, 2019 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

    Join the APA-NYM Transportation Committee and YPT for the 7th annual Transportation Scavenger Hunt on October 26th from 3-7 pm! Teams of 3-6 people will scour Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights, and others in search of answers to clues about the neighborhoods’ transportation history.

    This year we are continuing our partnership with Urban Archive, a location-based mobile platform that empowers New Yorkers to learn about history where it happened. The app brings together the digital collections of New York City’s museums, archives, and libraries in an easy-to-use resource built for discovery. Teams will use the app’s historic photos and our organizers’ written clues to ‘check in’ to locations throughout our hunt zone. You can also upload your own photos to show what sites look like today.

    Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams during a networking event at the end of the hunt. If you are signing up as part of team, please indicate that in your registration. Individuals should feel free to sign up as well – we will group people in teams as necessary. Please note that at least one person per team must have an iPhone running iOS 10.0 or later to participate.

    This event is free but you must RSVP and be a member of YPT or APA-NYM to participate.
