WBNA has been working with the state since June to ensure that a comprehensive presentation to the public about the Cranston Street Armory will take place in September that includes consultant Utile’s findings on possible re-uses for our neighborhood castle, as well as a reporting on the positive progress and momentum currently underway for this state asset.
WBNA seeks a new or existing business to occupy its 1978 square foot, ground floor retail space at 1577 Westminster Street, available starting September 1, 2018. While this sunny first floor space was originally built as a small market and café, WBNA welcomes a broad range of commercial uses including shops, start-ups, or other entities.
WBNA's summer performance series (June 28 and July 12, 19, & 26) features family-friendly fun with Trinity Rep's bilingual adaptation of The Tempest / La Tempestad, Motown band Nickel Jukebox, salsa and bachata sensation Roberto Arias y su Alebreke, and the awe-inspiring 60+ piece The American Band, plus lots of kids activities, the Armory Farmers Market Beer Garden, and more!
WBNA’s Community Development Committee reviewed the proposed redevelopment of 41-45 Parade Street (former Parkview nursing home) into residential apartments, and a new infill construction project by Peter Case at 1492 Westminster Street. Learn more about these projects.
The city's top honor for outstanding teacher goes to Rachel DeNofio, kindergarten teacher at Asa Messer Elementary School, who was lauded last week for her mastery of personalized teaching, deep relationships with students & families, and sharing her talents with educators statewide as leader of a model classroom for differentiated instruction.
The Armory Farmers Market opens Thursday, May 31, in Dexter Training Ground, offering seasonal produce, bread, coffee, meat and eggs plus more prepared food options this year and activities for all ages. Do a little shopping, then enjoy a picnic dinner with friends and family on Thursday evenings in the park!
From completing infrastructure projects to helping neighbors in need, our work could not be done without the support of WBNA members. As our neighborhood evolves, we need you more than ever to take part in shaping and making our future. Learn more.
