Photos from Church Hill North Better Block

Last night’s piece of this weekend’s Church Hill North Better Block Project was a great social urban moment, and then the rain came. If you didn’t make it out, come over today and see what the 1000 and 1100 blocks of 25th Street could be like.

You can find a ton more photos etc on Twitter at #BetterBlockRVA and Instagram at #BetterBlockRVA.

Church Hill North Better Block (Richmond, VA)

Church Hill North Better Block kicked off with the East End Economic Summit at the Robinson Theater. I’ll have video up from that probably later today or tomorrow.

After the summit, the MLK Royalty Steppers led the way down Q Street to 25th Street.

Can I be the contrarian on this? My wife and I walked up to the event around Noon or so today. Wanted to go yesterday, but was stuck at work until 10PM. It was everything I feared it would be and nothing that I hoped it would be. I didn’t see a lot of “possibilities” for the block shown.

First of all, the event did take on more of a festival feel than was intended, but sometimes live music and food trucks is what brings people out. Everyone enjoyed the music and with help from DaVita and Bon Secours, we were able to make sure all of the food trucks offered full meals… Read more »

I went with my family, it was a nice time and kid friendly, thank you Visual Arts Center! Unfortunately, the rain stymied us before we had finished, but I hope to see good come from this.

I really enjoyed Better Block and am hearing rumblings of real and permanent improvement to that area. I am more hopeful this Monday than last Monday for the neighborhood’s future.
