AWESOME tents & cars

The holidays & vacation have me running behind on this post, but here are Awesome NYC's grantees for November and December!

This is Not a Trash Pile

With programming from The Whale Project, The Fixers Collective and Time’s Up, among many others, this tent will be a hub for the community and will host combination of youth educational programs, resilient community programs, and mutual aid and distribution programs. We’ve even heard that the tent is going to house a library!


1911 Baker Electric Automobile

our $1000 microgrant will allow a group at the the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome museum to restore a 1911 Baker Electric Automobile to working order. This vehicle is quite a unique piece of early automotive technology, illustrating the little-known history of electric car experimentation. And it’s history you can see in person: in the summer, audiences at the Aerodrome can check out air shows and a "Parade of Vintage Vehicles" which will include the Baker Electric Car once it’s been restored.

Want to go on a road trip with the AwesomeNYC trustees to visit the electric car? Sign up to get info about our trip.
