One city, resource inequality

When people think of New York City, they usually imagine glittering skyscrapers, the renowned Broadway district, and world famous museums or concert halls. Yet outside the more vibrant areas are neighborhoods almost completely cut off from all the city center has to offer.

Brownsville is one of those places. A short train ride from Manhattan, it might as well be in a different country.

  • Yet kids and families here are just as creative, just as full of fun and ideas, as anywhere else.

Every summer, the Brownsville Festival of Learning provides opportunities for residents to be inventive, explore ideas, play games, and enjoy their neighbors in a relaxed environment.

Community participation at every step

The Festival of Learning is always organized and run with the full participation of Brownsville residents. Everyone loves it when the neighborhood becomes colorful, exciting, and full of joy. But equally important, it’s an event every resident can be proud of.

Brownsville is also the site of a year round ATD Fourth World Story Garden.
