Two of the city's residential historic districts are joining forces for a garage sale that continues this afternoon (Saturday, June 24) until 5 p.m. and tomorrow (Sunday, June 24) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 829 Park Avenue.
The event was organized to raise funds for new Crescent Area Historic District signs. An old one is at the right and the bigger, new one is on the left. Parking is available in the south lot of the Plainfield Public Library across the street from the sale site.
Each of the six residential historic districts is supposed to have a district association that interfaces with the Historic Preservation Commission, but only a couple are organized and active. Both the Crescent and Van Wyck Brooks districts now have blogs to share their news with the public. Click here for Crescent and here for Van Wyck Brooks.
