Prospect Park is one of our community's greatest treasures, with its unparalleled view of our city. But over the years, we've watched pavement degrade, benches rot, and brambles creep in. So the College Hill Neighborhood Association is in the planning process to restore the park. To kick off our campaign, we're having a family friendly launch party at the park this Wednesday at 6:00pm. Come to support the park--and meet your neighbors!
A tasty way to support Lippitt House!

The installation is part of a new performance piece MILTON being created by PearlDamour, the performance company who created HOW TO BUILD A FOREST. Lisa D"Amour and Katie Pearl have spent two years traveling to five towns named Milton across the United States - in Wisconsin, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Louisana, and Oregon. PearlDamour interviewed local residents and community groups about where they live and how they define their role in the world, asking the essential question, "how does it feel to be an American?"
