Williamsburg/Greenpoint "Protest for Parks"
Think all of our neighborhood's park and recreation spaces are being gobbled up by rampant, recklessly-conceived development? Well, you're not alone.
The Greenpoint Waterfront Association for Parks & Planning is hosting a town hall meeting on January 17th at 7 p.m. to strategize and coordinate how Greenpoint and Williamsburg residents can strike back against North Brooklyn's developers and the City officials that have given them carte blanche to realize their plans. The main topic of the event will be, in the words of the GWAPP's website, "WHERE THE HECK IS ALL THE OPEN SPACE WE WERE PROMISED IN THE REZONING?" (the capital letters are their emphasis).
In case you can't make it to the meeting at Warsaw, a.k.a. The Polish National Home, which is located at 261 Driggs Ave., you can still support GWAPP with a contribution. GWAPP is a 501(c)(3), meaning that all donations are tax-deductible.
