Whether you are a new supporter, or were there at the very beginning, the Newtown Creek Alliance invites you to share this moment to commemorate the great work they have done, and recognize the important work ahead, tomorrow Wednesday November 28, from 7-9pm @ The Warsaw (261 Driggs Ave).
Considering how much funk is in the creek, you know it’s gonna be quite the jam.
*Refreshments will be served, and there will be a cash bar.
In case you haven’t heard, another group has their eye on the 400 McGuinness Blvd location to be used as a homeless shelter. Not even two months after HELP USA’s plans were withdrawn, BRC is planning pretty much the same setup – a 200 bed shelter.
Here we go again…

It was a great time visiting my Greenpoint ex-pats in North Carolina and Virginia and spending Thanksgiving with my long time friends and their family. I’ve also had enough time with their collective children to last me until next year.
Back at work and pretty busy but I wanted to pass on two worthy fundraisers I received notice from friends going on the ‘hood this holiday season.
First up is the annual Toys for Tots shindig this Saturday. A long standing tradition in the neighborhood that grows every year.

Second is a coat drive at PS 110 also in connection with the Lions Club:
We are collecting coats for the needy in school. So if you have any that you don’t wear, please drop them off to P.S. 110. I am giving them to the Lions Club. We are actually helping people in our own neighborhood.
