An artsy block party in LIC
If you haven’t crossed over to LIC for a while, the SculptureCenter and the Purves Street Block Association hope the return of their arty block party spurs you to make the plunge. Ripe with live music, performances, an artist market and a "home-grown" food court, this block party is free and family-friendly. A range of artist-led activities ranging from carnival games to donut-making also dot the afternoon's festivities.
