Join your neighbors on June 21 to celebrate the second season of events on our long-sought, official Public Plaza on James Cagney Place, East 91st Street between Second and Third Avenues. Last year's Department of Transportation designation of this pedestrian plaza is an important step in keeping this enclave forever closed to cars. 

The James Cagney Place public plaza will take part in "Make Music New York" on Thursday evening, June 21, with local bands performing from 5:30-8:30pm, with a pre-show at 4:30pm by a local teen band "The Mischief 4" playing classic rock.
