PATERSON, NJ - Some of Paterson youngest artists, and their families, enjoyed some time at the beach Sunday, without leaving Paterson.

Hosted by the Paterson Music Project the event, held at the future site of 24 1/2 where developer Levi Kelman has created an oversize courtyard and transformed it through the delivery of over 500 tons of beach sand, as well as beach chairs, umbrellas, tables, included live music and a lot of fun, according to at least one attendee. 

The installation of the sandy oasis is only one small part of Kelman’s vision, which, foreshadowing his 5-year, nearly $40 million plan for the 7-building site also includes repurposing the blighted property that served as the longtime home to Fabricolor into a vibrant space that will offer a mix of living, working, and entertainment opportunities.
