Since 2008, First Street Green has converted a derelict building lot at 33 E. 1st Street in Manhattan into an open art space serving the Lower East Side community. Collaborating with NYC Parks and Partnership For Parks, FSG has successfully incorporated the lot into First Park. Today, FSG provides ongoing cultural activity in First Park by engaging with emerging artists, architects, community and cultural groups through a series of programs that activate this public space.

We work in three ways. We host your event, we collaborate with you to create an event, we curate our own events. If you have an idea, we encourage you to contact us by sending an email to Silva at or Ann at
