Get it Here: Videos of Post-Halloween NuHart Superfund Meeting in Greenpoint

It’s Friday; instead of “Netflix and chill,” why not “Superfund and chill?” After all, you can’t spell “Superfund” without “super fun” — ask CityFox to explain.

In what proved to be a fateful pre-scheduled meeting, the Neighbors Allied For Good Growth (NAG) and Council Member Levin’s office hosted a post-Halloween Superfund meeting at the Polish & Slavic Center in Greenpoint.

Here’s a video playlist of the meeting.

Local residents fielded their questions to: representatives of Dupont Street Developers, Council Member Levin, the Department of Environmental Conservation, Department of Health, City Office of Environmental Remediation and Assemblyman Joe Lentol’s office, in addition to NAG board members Mike Schade and Rita Pasarell.

As a result of the Halloween fiasco, CityFox and Dupont Street Developers LLC are now facing city and state investigations.

State Assemblyman Joe Lentol wrote a letter to the state’s attorney general to investigate the permit process for pop-up parties.

Other resources mentioned in the video:

NAG provided a copy of CityFox’s permit applications and approvals from the NYS Liquor Authority and the NYC Department of Buildings.

Dr. Peter deFur, the Greenpoint community technical consultant hired by NAG through a state grant, gave a presentation available here on what’s lurking beneath the surface at NuHart.

On the latter note, stay tuned for more coverage to follow.
