"...Shall I compare thee to a summer's day...?"

Please join us this Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., when we will be celebrating the year's longest day with some of humanity's most timeless written works—a reading of poetry by Percy Bysshe Shelley, Emma Lazarus, Robert Frost, and even the great Bard himself, William Shakespeare—with musical accompaniment.  A snack-and-cookie potluck will follow. Bring your favorites and discover some new ones!

The East Fourth Street Community Garden, located between Fort Hamilton Parkway and Caton Avenue, has served the neighborhoods of Windsor Terrace and Kensington for nearly 40 years.
