Green Harbor Ride is a bike ride organized by artist Anna Lise Jensen, as part of a multifaceted struggle to get a bike/pedestrian lane on the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge, using one of its 13 existing lanes, in order to create a greener NYC harbor. Join in by riding your bike to The Old Stone House on September 12!

Along the way, snap pics and tag them #GreenHarborRide, #BrooklynUtopias2020, #JaneJacobsLivesHere and #OldStoneHouse. Start off from wherever you prefer – in Southwest Brooklyn, we are meeting at 12PM in front of Stand Gallery, 414 78th St, Brooklyn, NY 11209.

Once you arrive, enjoy outdoor refreshments (safely distanced), and learn how you can help to create a greener NYC with information about future steps for this ride.

Join artist, educator, and tour guide Rich Garr for a walk around the neighborhood to explore the hidden art along the Gowanus Canal.

The walk will begin in Carroll Gardens at Brooklyn Habitat, 405 Smith Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231.
