NoHo Block Party Claims the Streets

Turns out, streets are for us all.

Last Saturday night, Lankershim Blvd. was closed down in the heart of the NoHo Arts District for an evening of vibrant fun for the NoHo Block Party.

It was a filled and fun atmosphere as people roamed between the closures from Chandler to Magnolia.

In an area next to one of the busiest Metro stations in the system and neighborhood that has the bones to be walkable, it’s no surprise attendance was a hit.

As you could of guessed, I biked there because obviously who wants to look for parking for something like this?



You could have spent plenty of time viewing the art as installations were set up through the corridor.

Of course, if you’re coming during the evening hours, your plan is to probably eat.

The funny thing is despite the fact that the food trucks increase the possibilities, all the additional seating next to the restaurants was full as well.

Needless to say, with the success of CicLAvia rolling down here three years ago, this event highlights the need for this corridor to fuantion at a human scale rather than a thruway for those passing through.


Things getting started.




This would be pretty cool in my backyard, if I could figure out how to get it there…


Glad to see the overflowing crowd from Vicious Dogs, one of the best supporters of cycling in NoHo.


NoHo Plaza is often underutilized, but when there’s action inside, it fills up quickly.


Oh yeah, you could drink beer in the streets too for the evening.


On the other side of the street, you had to negotiate to get around the food trucks.




To wish that art like this could be a permanent fixture on our streets.


A fun little respite that kept kids entertained.


And families just out enjoying the entertainment as the sun goes down.
