Hey look, it’s another neighborhood meeting! This one is the first meeting for the Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park. So if you felt out of place going to those other neighborhood meetings, at this one it’ll be all brand new. Virgin territory. And this one is at a BAR! Already sounds like a better meeting than most.
PLEASE JOIN US AT THE FIRST MEETING OF
Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park
May 14th at 7 pm
The Gutter Bar
200 N.14th (between Wythe and Berry St)
(Unfortunately no children allowed – against bar policy)
THE BUSHWICK INLET PARK WILL BE 28 ACRES ALONG THE EAST RIVER STRETCHING FROM THE STATE PARK AT N.9TH ST TO THE NORTHERN SIDE OF THE INLET BY MESEROLE AVE.
THIS PARK WAS PROMISED TO THE COMMUNITY. COME LEARN OF THE PLANS – COME HELP MAKE IT A REALITY.
The best way to get the parks we deserve is through persistent community attention to each park. GWAPP (Greenpoint Waterfront Association for Parks & Planning) is helping kickstart a big (and sustained) Push for Parks all across our North Brooklyn neighborhoods to create, support and unite park-specific Friends Groups. The purpose of these groups will be to gather information about the way the community uses the parks, the issues and needs of each park and to establish a community representatives for each park, who persistently push for improvements – whether from the city, the Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn, neighbors, local businesses, grants…
This is the initial meeting of what, for now, is called the Friends of BIP (Bushwick Inlet Park). Come learn of the City’s promise for and planning of what is to be a 28 acre park straddling the Greenpoint/Williamsburg Waterfront.
