July 23: Urban Omnibus Block Party 2015

Come join us on July 23rd for a midsummer’s night of great views and great socializing on the Long Island City waterfront.
The League’s 5th annual Urban Omnibus Block Party will benefit and celebrate Urban Omnibus’ work defining and enriching the culture of citymaking. Take in beautiful waterfront views outside, or play Four Square, Skelly, and other street games inside, and try a sampling of dosas, baklava, charcuterie, and other fare from great local Queens restaurants. Enjoy drinks all night among fellow designers, artists, policymakers, and urban enthusiasts passionate about New York City. Views of Four Freedoms Park, the Queensboro Bridge, and the Midtown skyline will be provided! Join the conversation on social media using the hashtag #UOBlockParty.
