Good Life Garden is a 13,000-square-foot public garden open April to December that offers arts, culture, and education programming and addresses the socioeconomic needs of the community. Spearheaded by community activist and founder Kofi Thomas, the former derelict park was reclaimed, cleaned up, and cleared out in October 2017.
The L Train Brass Band is the performance ensemble of the Brooklyn Brass Band Collective. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the group serves the NYC music community by providing a truly unique, engaging—and most importantly, FUN—experience for adult musicians of all levels. The LTBB fosters a safe and friendly creative environment by promoting self-expression and welcoming individuals from all musical backgrounds and walks of life. Their ever-growing, socially-conscious community offers the most exciting way to pick up a horn, hit the streets, and start playing music!
