City Hall Rally

Where’s our park? In the hands of another developer if CitiStorage owner has his way.

Save Bushwick Inlet Park

Last month Greenpoint and Williamsburg neighbors broke out of North Brooklyn and headed down to City Hall to fight for Bushwick Inlet Park. We joined hands, sang songs, screamed our heads off and showed Mayor DeBlasio we have serious balls to bang on the table. In fact, there were so many of us at City Hall, 300+ people by most accounts, we were spilling out into the streets because there wasn’t enough room to for us all.

Our rabble-rousing Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park are at it again and need our help. They are passing around a petition which lays it out to the Mayor in clear-cut terms: We want our park, you know the one promised to us YEARS ago, and we won’t back down until we get one!

Don’t think this issue effects you? Think again.

Light show hits CitiStorage. Activists gear up for Thursday’s City Hall rally.

If any of you were strolling around Kent Avenue last Friday night you might have seen an interesting light show appearing on the wall of the CitiStorage building.

Friends of Bushwick Park are rallying the troops for this Thursday’s City Hall protest and Friday night they lit up their message for all of NYC to see. For those of you who haven’t heard by now, the future of our 28 acre park is in serious jeopardy of getting sold to developers for another residential tower if we don’t stand up and say something. Thursday’s March 12th rally is calling on Mayor DeBlasio to fulfill a 10 year old promise of a park this area desperately needs.

Pack your lunch, make that “doctor’s appointment”, or do what ever you need you to and get your fannies down to City Hall this Thursday at 1 pm. Bring your loud angry voices, your most obnoxious noise makers, your pets, or anything else that will make some noise. If we want our park, City Hall needs to feel the heat. Continue reading
