City Council listens to US

On Wednesday, January 23 the City Council chambers were overwhelmed with LES people who turned out to oppose the City’s plans for East River Park.

Originally the joint hearing by the Parks Committee and the Environmental Committee had been scheduled in a small hearing room off City Council chambers but the over-flow crowd forced a change in rooms.

The City’s presentation and the questions by Council member revealed a plan not fully funded or fully developed. The Gothamist coverage is worth a READ.
