Quit Bitching and Start NAGing:
Williamsburg Town Hall Meeting Thursday
(yes, you can still watch the debate!)
For those of us who love to complain (we admit it!) about the state of the neighborhood...and also you curious types who adore Williamsburg but wish you could move beyond friend-requesting the 'Burg on Facebook or gossiping about Billy on Williamsboard, here's your chance to actually get involved and make your voice heard:
The good folks at NAG - that's Neighbors Allied for Good Growth - have organized a town hall meeting this Thursday, October 2nd at 7 pm in the basement of Holy Ghost Hall - at 159 North 5th Street (betweeen Bedford and Driggs). We're pretty sure that's a church hall, not an underground music venue...but around here of course, you can't be sure.
But seriously, pick your personal meme:
- Will the daily L Train mosh pit get better or worse?
- Where's my rezone-guaranteed new open spaces?
- What's happening with McCarren Park Pool?
- Will Kent Avenue get a bike lane or will bicycle/truck death racing become an Olympic Sport?
Now we know what you're thinking: "But Sarah Palin's national TV implosion is Thursday night!" The NAG folks PROMISE the meeting will end with plenty of time to get to Zabloski's or Hugs or Matchless - or wherever you plan on watching the VP Debate at 9 pm. Think of the Town Hall meeting as a local tailgate party - with issues you can actually do something about.
