This past Saturday, L.E.S. residents came out to Pier 42 to celebrate the beginning of fall and enjoy the newest community space on the East River waterfront.. Activities included tours of art and design installations on site, an opening reception for “The People’s Poster Project” with artist Sonia Louise Davis, a drumming workshop with artist team Combo Colab & Stereotank, a workshop to make your own personal survival kit with artist Tattfoo Tan, and a kite-making and flying competition with Two Bridges Neighborhood Council.

The Fall Festival was a part of Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Open Studio Weekend, and was the last in a season of community events at Pier 42 until 2015. Those who were not able to make it can still check out the installations and enjoy the park through the end of November.
