caribBEING Cooks—Virtual Pop-Up Lefferts

Virtual Pop-Up Lefferts: caribBEING Cooks

Join Prospect Park Alliance and caribBEING to explore culinary traditions of Brooklyn. Watch a cooking demonstration with Nuyorican local makers Breukelen Rub, followed by a moderated conversation on Caribbean culinary traditions.


Prospect Park Alliance has announced the launch of Pop-Up Lefferts, which brings free family programs focused on Brooklyn’s rich culture and history, starting virtually this June with its second annual partnership with caribBEING, a Flatbush-based cultural organization that builds awareness and fosters Caribbean heritage, as part of National Caribbean-American Heritage Month.

In June, virtual programming will feature Caribbean-centered cooking, fitness, maker workshops and storytelling. Pop-Up Lefferts will then continue at locations around Prospect Park and surrounding neighborhoods while Lefferts Historic House undergoes a $2.5 million restoration funded by the New York City Council.

Pop-Up Lefferts is supported in part by NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital.
