First Street Green Opens First Park

Join East Village community group First Street Green as they kick off a season of cultural programming in the new First Park. What used to be a rat-infested lot, First Park held the BMW Guggenheim Lab last year, and now First Street Green has turned the space into a vibrant gathering place for the neighborhood to host events like live music and art performances.
