The Day: FAB Friday Nights, Bike Classes and a Spike Lee Film Series at BAM
Good morning, Fort Greene and Clinton Hill.
This weekend should be sunny and mild with temperatures in the low 70s, according to the National Weather Service. But don’t put away your umbrella just yet, as there’s a slight chance of showers later today.
If you’re looking for a way to kick off your weekend in the neighborhood, head down to Fowler Square between Fulton Street and Lafayette Avenue tonight for FAB Friday Nights, which features a free concert by singer-songwriter Herve Gaspard this week. Check out a full line-up of the Fulton Area Business Alliances’s free summer events here.
