Woodhaven to hold neighborhood-wide yard sale

By Gabriel Rom

The Woodhaven Residents’ Block Association will hold its annual neighborhood yard sale Sept. 26 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The idea for the yard sale, now in its fourth year, came from WRBA member Vance Barbour. He believed it would be a boon for local residents to hold yard sales on the same day rather than having them scattered across the calendar.

The WRBA is looking for more residents to join in and become participants. Last year more than 100 households across Woodhaven participated in the yard sale.

A Facebook page has been set up where residents can post photos of items they will have on sale, check out items that others have posted for sale and talk with their neighbors.

Once registration is complete, the WRBA will have a map of locations that are participating available on request.

In case of rain, the rain date will be Sunday, Sept. 27, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The WRBA will also be carrying out its first mailed resident survey. The survey, which will run through Dec. 31, consists of questions on the WRBA, residents’ households and the business district. The results will be released in 2016. More information can be found at www.woodhaven-nyc.org
