Photo of the week: No Park(ing) Day

The annual No Park(ing) Day led to some creative uses of parking spaces. Here, on Bedford Avenue near North Seventh Street in Williamsburg, someone set up a mini-gym for passers-by.

Friday, Sept. 19 was “No Park(ing) Day” — and activists rushed to retake valuable curbside space from cars.

Our favorite was this verdant spot on Bedford Avenue near North Seventh Street in Williamsburg, which had been converted into a “meditation garden” for the day.

Brooklyn Heights’ “park” was at the corner of Atlantic Avenue and Court Street, and featured a kiddie pool.

Park Slopers got into the spirit a day later, setting up “Park Slope Park” in a spot at the corner of Seventh Avenue and Fourth Street.
