N Street Park Opens

NoMa has a new pop-up park on N Street, NE! Adjacent to the Hyatt Place hotel, JBG created and designed the funky community space to encourage visitors to gather and interact with each other. A series of oversized pentagonal “dice" can be moved and shifted by visitors to create their own colorful groupings for hanging out with friends and coworkers. International street artist Rubin (Rubin415) created a mural on the back wall of the pop-up park.

The geometric theme of the pop-up space was inspired by JBG’s NoMa mural series along N and First Streets, NE. Renowned artist Kyle Hughes-Odgers created the mural at 1300 First Street, NE and Momo painted the facade of 51 N Street, NE. Check out the park and the art along N Street for yourself! The park is open 7 days a week, from 8 AM to 9 PM.
