Liz Joins Other Local Electeds in Hosting Community Forum to Gather Public Input on East Side Waterfront Plans

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

State Senator Liz Krueger, Assemblymember Brian Kavanagh, and Councilmember Dan will be holding the first of  a series of public forums tonight to gather input on an outline plan that would allow the United Nations to construct a new building on a portion of a public park in exchange for major park and waterfront open space improvements on Manhattan’s East Side.

The goal of the forums is to reach a community-led consensus on the details of what is now only a basic framework, but has the potential to create a much-needed waterfront esplanade and other open space and park improvements for the public.

#1: TONIGHT: Thursday, August 4th, 4-7pm, NYU Medical Center (Schwartz Hall F – Ground Floor), 550 First Avenue (enter at First Avenue at 31st Street)
