BGI Bike Ride in Greenpoint/Williamsburg
Meet at 12:30pm at CitiStorage, N. 11th & Kent Ave.
The New York City Department of Transportation is in the process striping bike lanes on many of the streets along the future route of the Greenway in Greenpoint/Williamsburg. Eventually, these will be reconfigured so that pedestrian, joggers and bicyclists will be physically separated from moving traffic with the addition of a planted median. The bike ride is a celebration of this important milestone!

Making Way for the Greenway!
A benefit for the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative
Join supporters and friends of the Greenway for an evening of music and program shorts from some of Galapagos' fabulous resident artists! Proceeds support the development of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway, a 14-mile off-street bike and pedestrian route that will connect Brooklyn's parks, neighborhoods and people. Galapagos is located midway along the planned route, so it's the perfect place for a celebration of recent milestones.

Matt Wasowski, founder and Big Boss of Nerd Nite will give a presentation about the Coney Island hot dog eating contest and the fascinating world of competitive eating. Also featuring the hot and sweet sounds of Michael Arenella and his music. Other acts TBA.
