big_neck_logo_2

A record label with its birthplace in the seamy underbelly of Buffalo, New York. Spawned from the ashes of the infamous Sanctuary nightclub that was home to many crazy nights and many crazy, messed up bands. Big Neck Records was then suddenly uprooted and moved to Northern Virginia, where it now resides.

The only creed that Big Neck Records lives by is to keep crazy, messed up rock-n-roll going strong!

The Yards Park

waterfront_2Like no other park in the region, The Yards Park is a new regional waterfront destination, offering a whole new way for local residents to enjoy the outdoors and the river.  The 5.5 acre park--the size of about four football fields--includes a ¼ mile long boardwalk along the water and was designed as a series of unique  “outdoor rooms”  to provide a variety of experiences from the great lawn to the sculptural pedestrian bridge, the waterfall/canal basin to the overlook and riverfront gardens. The Yards Park was built through a public/private partnership between the federal General Services Administration, the District of Columbia, and Forest City Washington and is managed and programmed by the Capitol Riverfront Business Improvement District.  Information about the Yards Park can be found at (www.dcyards.com)
