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.
