This past Friday and Saturday, Folbot participated in EarthFair, as part of the Earth Day celebrations in New York City.
It was quite a couple of days! Along with some other very cool companies and non-profits, we were set up on East 43rd Street by Madison Avenue — with the spectacular Grand Central Station and Chrysler Building as a backdrop. About 50,000 people attended and we had a great time adding to the Folbot family.
Here’s the story in pictures.

Where is that train?
Citibot rides the rails in comfort
Last stop... Grand Central Station
We started putting the Folbot booth together
And it ended up looking pretty good
We had a great location on E. 43rd Street by Madison Avenue
With Grand Central Station behind us the other way
The Folbot banner challenged the Chrysler Building for skyline dominance
Day 1 was super busy with a mix of business people and tourists
People big and small loved us
So did a bobcat
As did a cow? A cat?
Even a baby T-rex ran up to check out the Citibot
As the first day ended the moon came out.
Day 2 was more casual but got just as busy
The Folbot crew met lots of people and worked hard
And then it was time to go home
Thanks to everyone who came by. It was great meeting you.
And a special thanks to Erik, Ellie, Livie, Brad, Sharon, Alice and Julian for all their help.
What a fantastic way to celebrate Earth Day.
