Summer Space on Montague Street

The Brooklyn Book Festival wasn't the only event happening in Brooklyn Heights on Sunday.  Summer Space on Montague Street brought a car(e)-free attitude to the street. Two blocks were closed to make room for folks to relax at the tables and chairs scattered around the area. The Martha Cardona Theater (above) offered opera and musical theater selections, and the Brooklyn Ballet performed as well.

The Brooklyn Eagle sponsored chess games and brought chess master/ game-caller Christian Whitted (with the megaphone, above) and his “Big Chess” game board to the street.

Kids could draw with chalk or visit Play Land, supplied with a bubble machine, hula hoops, jump ropes and beach balls.

Or, you could do some outdoor yoga with Yoga People. (We missed the Brooklyn Heights Dog Contest, sponsored by the Brooklyn Heights Association. We're looking forward to seeing photos of the event.)

Summer Space was sponsored by the Montague Street BID.
