4-8 pm Yarn Arts w/Kelli Pryor and Knitting Mama

ONGOING:

New York City is intent on shutting East River Park down for at least five years. This is an ill-conceived plan.
The City claims it’s East Side Coastal Resiliency Project will provide flood protection for about 25 years. It is a $1.4 billion boondoggle.
Green Space is a health issue for our community. Losing any public, open space will cause irreparable damage to our people.
The DeBlasio Administration is sticking the next mayor with a project that can’t be completed on time with a looming fiscal crisis.
A generation could lose 50 acres of playgrounds, picnics and ball fields. Those 50 happy acres will become a construction site. For purely health reasons this could be a disaster.
