Huntington Artist Alley

Help Fund the Huntington Artist Alley Project!

The NY Ave/New Street Alleyway serves as the only direct route from the New Street Parking Lot to the downtown entertainment district on NY Ave. Unfortunately, this path has been unsightly and unsafe for years, hindering the incredible potential for people to gather, socialize, enjoy the arts and contribute to the local economy.

Our group of Huntington community stakeholders have banded together to tackle the longstanding problem of this ignored alley that has plagued the community for over 50 years. The mission of this project is to revitalize the alleyway into a vibrant and safe space that promotes art, culture, and commerce, while also enhancing the overall community experience. The walkway will be transformed into a park-like setting that features interactive art, murals, gardens and a well lit pedestrian gathering space. By creating an aesthetically pleasing environment, the group hopes to attract visitors near and far to our creative destination showcasing and enhancing the Village’s vibrant culture. Our inspirations include the successful Wynwood Walls in Miami, Elfreth’s Alley in Philadelphia, Hosier Lane in Melbourne, and Passeig de Gracia in Barcelona.

The 1653 Foundation is at the beginning of an important partnership with Huntington Village BID (Lead), Huntington Planning Department, Huntington Town Attorney’s office, Office of the Supervisor, The Laurel Group, JGM Construction Development, digho arts, The Huntington Chamber of Commerce, and the Huntington Arts Council. We are excited to launch this revitalization effort and are calling on the support of the community to make it a reality. With the help and support of the property owners we hope to transform the alleyway into a vibrant and welcoming space that will be enjoyed by all.
