Free and open to all, our popular Public Space Potlucks gather urban enthusiasts of all ages and backgrounds together for a shared meal, temporarily transforming New York City’s public space into a communal dining room. 

Launched in 2008, Public Space Potlucks were initially inspired by architects Zack McKown and Calvin Tsao, who threw a dinner party in the center of the Brooklyn Bridge one summer. Through the years, the Potlucks have steadily gained a following and taken place in diverse locations like the Grand Concourse, the Staten Island Ferry, Roosevelt Island and underneath the BQE, to name a few.
