Florida Avenue Summer Block Party 2021
Posted Aug 19, 2021 by Dave Scaturro
Another Annual Block Party in the books! On Friday, August 12th, Alpine Painting hosted our annual Florida Avenue Block Party where local Paterson, New Jersey businesses were invited to gather for an afternoon of delicious food, drinks and laughs. Feldman Brothers, Bergen Sign Company, DeLoach Paving Contractor, Levine Industries, Dingman’s Dairy, Studio J Architectural Glass, Fox Fence, and Airgas of Paterson were just some of those in attendance. Alpine was also privileged to have Carmelos Brick Oven Pizza serving up some authentic wood-fire pizza.
Here at Alpine, we don’t take the term “block party” lightly. Anytime we get to take a break from our day to day business and be in the presence of great company, we make sure we do it right. As in years past, we blocked off the north sidewalk of Florida Avenue where we grilled, played games, and got to share laughs with our neighbors. The event began at noon, when most local businesses take their lunch, and carried on until about 3:00 PM. The event truly was a success and we cannot thank all those who visited and participated. We already look forward to next year’s event as grateful neighbors and members of our Paterson, NJ community.
“What started as an initial need has blossomed into a great privilege to keep the feeling of community alive. So often we get caught up in our day-to-day business operations, that we don’t take the time to get to know the people we work side-by-side with,” says Ben Scaturro. Below are some of the highlights of the afternoon.
