Each September, the Hudson TMA participates in Park(ing) Day1
. It is an annual international event
where metered parking spaces are temporarily transformed into a mini park. The originators of Park(ing) Day
conceived the event as a way for people to re-imagine our urban landscape. In addition to this goal, the TMA
also sees it as a fun way to get people to think about how they travel and the impact it makes on our environment.
The 'instant' park attracts passers-by, allowing the TMA staff to engage them in a dialogue about using their cars less often.
We theme our little park in downtown Jersey City, "Shakespeare in the Park(ing) Spot." On hand to
provide the classical element was the Actors Shakespeare Company. These gifted
actors offered a wonderful performance, donating both their time and their swords for our event. To learn more
about our program and see a spontaneous and unrehearsed sword fight with a humorous ending, play the video below. If you would like to be involved in our next Park(ing) Day event, please email the
