On October 15, Sharon Street was blocked off for their 2nd annual block party. Friends of Cooper Park organized the event and partnered with the Leonard Library, NYC Parks, St. Nicks Alliance, Drip, Pegasus, Rose Wolf Coffee, GRIMM, and NYC Department of Transportation.
The Leonard Library hosted story time. Those who brought a shirt or tote bag from home could get it screen printed with the Friends of Cooper Park logo thanks to Pegasus. There was apple cider to spare and burgers on the grill. Meadowgrass played bluegrass to add a spring to everyone’s step on the glorious fall day.
The Friends of Cooper Park’s raffle raised almost $1000 for park beautification projects Prizes were donated by Crest Hardware, Grimm Ales, Tarpit coffee, Il Passatore, Mother’s, Artist & Craftsman Supply, MoMA PS1, The Meat Hook, and Barcade.
