Spotted On Franklin Street: ULURP Review Procedure Public Hearing

As dutifully noted by our friends at Save Greenpoint. Those of you who have the ability (I know, 5:00 p.m. precludes a lot of folks from attending— and this meeting was probably scheduled for this time for just this reason) really should go to this…

ULURP Review Procedure Public Hearing
September 17, 2013 at 5:00 p.m.
Brooklyn Borough Hall, Borough President’s Court Room
209 Joralemon Street
Brooklyn, new York 11201

From The New York Shitty Inbox: A Petition & More

A lady named Kim writes:

Hi Heather,
…I’m one of gals with the SaveGreenpoint gang. I’m been a long time lurker on your site; you always manage to keep me entertained and informed on the hood’s doings. Thanks for that!

I have been at all the CB meetings/rallies about GPL and 77 Commercial and this ULURP business is a bunch of total b.s. However, I have found an angle that is potentially more powerful and even more scary that a wall of 40 story towers, if that’s possible. It’s that ugly word called toxicity.

I’ve created a petition aimed at the State and Governor, and it would be great if you could sign it and pass the word along. You’ve got people’s ears, and they really should hear about this: http://www.change.org/petitions/governor-cuomo-protect-greenpoint-and-our-children-from-toxins-before-it-is-too-late?share_id=gvldDkbLUt&utm_campaign=signature_receipt&utm_medium=email&utm_source=share_petition

Duly passed along! On a (somewhat) related note, this evening Save Domino will be having an event! Follows is the invite, for those of you who are not in the know:
