  1. I would like to nominate Flannery Foster, the co-founder of Good Yoga. A lot of people go to that studio because the have met Flannery, because she’s great. She and her partner Ray live in Greenpoint and are always doing stuff locally and publicizing other people’s events and businesses. The studio has a night of 108 Sun Salutations every few months to raise money for women around the world suffering from fistulas and the have art shows from local artists. She’s just a good, local person who spends a lot of time listening to a lot of people. And a lot of time caring.
