Build it Green and We Heart Astoria Block Party and Swap

Build It Green, New York City’s only non-profit retail outlet for salvaged and surplus building materials, and one of our favorite blogs, We Heart Astoria, are partnering for a cool, family friendly block party – the 4th Annual Astoria Block Party & Stop ‘N’ Swap!

There will be great food, drinks, face painting, a plant sale, e-waste recycling, swaps and more. You can RSVP on Facebook and invite your friends! More info can be found at

The schedule of events is:

12-3pm: swap your own unwanted items for other new-to-you stuff, recycle electronic waste, take in some great local music/djs, visit with cool face painters and take home a new plant from BIG’s plant sale.

3-5pm: WHA sponsored after-party! Keep the party going with Brooklyn beer, veggie dogs and great music. This is going to be a block party unlike other block parties.
