Residents and visitors to the Flatiron District will be able to enrich their minds, strengthen their bodies, and laugh to witty performances – all for free this July on the Public Plazas. The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership (BID) is collaborating with local partners to offer three weeks of the free evening programming from July 8 to July 24.
On Tuesdays, instructors from General Assembly, the urban campus for technology, design and entrepreneurship, will lead workshops on a range of tech-related topics. On Wednesdays, instructors from local Flatiron fitness studios will teach exercise and yoga classes, sponsored by Athleta, the fitness fashion retailer. On Thursdays, the Peoples Improv Theater (The PIT) will delight audiences with witty performances.
The workshops and classes will be held in the South Public Plaza, located on Broadway between 22nd and 23rd Streets, and the improve performances will be held in the North Public Plaza at 23rd Street, Fifth Avenue and Broadway.
Since 2012, the BID has partnered with General Assembly to offer free summer tech workshops in the plazas. In response to positive feedback from the community, the BID decided to expand the free programming to include the fitness and improv events.
