PRLog - May 2, 2011 - New York, NY – One Brooklyn Bridge Park Brooklyn Heights’ hottest condo conversion located at 360 Furman Street, partnered with the Kids Ride Club (KRC) to exhibit a tent at Bike Fest, the highly successful kick-off event held for Bike Week and the Five-Boro Bike Tour at the Brooklyn Bridge Park Plaza and Pier 1 on Saturday, April 30th.

KRC, a 16-year-old non-profit program that introduces youngsters to cycling, joined One Brooklyn Bridge Park (OBBP) to give out special OBBP and KRC tagged water bottles and frisbees to the 500 visitors who stopped by the tent.

“We were glad to participate in such a great community event and partner with KRC in support of their efforts. The synergies of an active lifestyle and One Brooklyn Bridge Park’s location within Brooklyn’s newest park and the Brooklyn Greenway seemed to be a perfect match in connection with this event,” said Ian Levine, president and COO of RAL Cos., developer of OBBP.

The entertainment line-up at the event included The Meetles, New York's most popular Beatles and 1960s tribute band; Bomba Yo, an African-Puerto Rican drum group; JamX Courtesy of the Jamaica Tourist Board; as well as a roster of kids' performers, including the multi-talented Looney Louie and mesmerizing Magic Al.
