A couple of exceptional events are coming to Lafayette Avenue this weekend:
- First, on Saturday, Takeover BAM comes to the lovely performance venue on Lafayette. We’ve already covered it here, but to recap, it’s an all-night lock-in type event featuring great bands, great films, and other entertaining antics.
- Then on Sunday morning, the annual New York Marathon whizzes through Fort Greene. The runners will be in their 9th mile as they navigate Lafayette Avenue before heading up to Williamsburg. The atmosphere and camraderie on the street are unbelievable — the event brings out the best in people. Expect to see the frontrunners at around 10:30am.
