To friends and supporters:

There's nothing left for us to do this year but to write you all a love letter and thank you for sharing with us in another great year at the Market and at JBOLC. We are so blessed and joyful to be embraced by you - and we'd like to take some time to embrace you back.

Thanks and Love and Happy Holidays Wishes to you All!

Let's have a good time together outside!

James Baldwin Outdoor Learning Center presentation at 2018 Municipal Art Society's Summit for New York City Innovation Exhibition held at Inside Park at St. Bart's, on Tuesday, October 9, next door to the Summit program at St. Bart's Church.

Here's what has been said about us: "Of the many incredible submissions that are empowering individuals to shape their built environment, our jury of Urbanist Members were particularly impressed with your project, Another Country/James Baldwin Outdoor Learning Center."
We would love to thank all the urbanists who participated the event, especially those who came to our table and showed interests in what we are doing and supported us and our outdoor programs.
And big thanks to our team for a stunning presentation!

The combination of tactile artifacts and story handouts, so elegantly formatted was such a strong reminder of where we have come and where we are going!
