A better block is hard to describe in words. It is best when experienced and felt, but if you have not made it out to a better block, check out the videos, stories and pictures below from a recent project in Norfolk, VA.
This is one of the top five better blocks ever completed. The community embraced the idea and demonstrated the power of action. I love the following video because it concentrates on the people of better block Norfolk. The characters and passions translated into a unique experience and expression of the city. People are attracted to authenticity and that is why better blocks get large crowds without advertising or gimmicks.
What is left after the better block is a community of doers. They now have new tools to tackle issues in the city and their own neighborhood. Check out what this amazing community did!
