Today marked the first day of the Robo-L-Train. I was riding with Krista today and she let me in on the fact that there was no man driving our train this morning. But it seems the Robo-Train is only during off peak times – for now. The Daily News
This Sunday March 1st is the Town Square‘s Spring SchoolFEST taking place at John Ericsson MS 126 (424 Leonard St).
“SchoolFEST is a school fair involving all schools and child service organizations in Greenpoint & Williamsburg (private & public, day care to high school). It’ll be an informative and fun day for parents/kids (and educators & service providers) to learn about what’s available for our kids in our neighborhood. There’ll be literature & representatives from the schools, performances showcasing music and other programs offered by the schools, interactive activities for kids and more. And for those parents with kids about to enter Pre-K or Elementary this fall (like me), it’s a perfect time to educate ourselves about our choices.”
