This one never gets old. What’s more, Alex Low of the New Kings Democrats not only noticed— but made sure that all attendees present at this evening’s proceedings minded their “P’s” and “Q’s”…
This is the first installment of this evening’s debate. More to come. Given my site is acting up again (Yeah, I know) I’ll continue adding footage as I can. Otherwise, I’d advise everyone to check my YouTube page. There you will find it all!
Josef, one of the Greenpoint community’s more colorful characters, talks up Councilman Levin after said proceedings.

Earlier today I noted the meeting regarding crime scheduled for this evening has been cancelled —and a public forum regarding crime has been organized by our city Councilman, Steve Levin, is scheduled for August 27th. Well, it has been brought to my attention the previous evening, August 26th, there will be a sunset “meet and greet” at 475 Kent Avenue, replete with cocktails, on the rooftop!
A few thoughts/observations:
- This email blast (which was in turn forwarded to yours truly) was sent to someone who is not a resident of 475 Kent Avenue.
- However he/she has attended Loft Law workshops publicized by NAG (Neighbors Allied For Good Growth).
- NAG is a recipient of city funding for activities like Williamsburg Walks.
- The tenant organizer for NAG also happens to be a member of Community Board 1— and she was appointed by Councilman Levin.
- The NYC Loft Tenant Group is a city-wide group. Are they conducting “meet and greets” for all city councilmembers up for reelection this year— or only Steve Levin?

Have you seen this?
No, I had not. However, being one who takes the issue of bicyclist/pedestrian safety— and traffic enforcement— quite seriously, I contacted the folks at Permanent records to find out what happened. A very kind fellow named Matthew wrote me back. here’s what he had to say:
Hi Heather… thanks for getting in touch. I’m a little hesitant to divulge too many of the specifics right now… Meg is recovering from surgery and I don’t want to inadvertently give more details than she is comfortable with. The accident happened south of Greenpoint on her way up (I believe) Classon, and she was essentially knocked off her bike and then run over by a truck. Her injuries will likely have her immobile for some time, but all things considered, we’re extremely grateful things aren’t worse.
I’d be thrilled if you’d be willing to share this story and help out our cause here. You can also let people know that some friends of the shop have already donated some goods, including rare and out of print records, and we’re gonna set up some sort of auction or raffle fundraiser for them… we’ll have those details soon. And if you’d like more specific details on the actual accident, once Meg is up for it, I’ll put you two in touch and she can get them all to you.
As you can imagine Meg has a big road ahead of her. I suspect I speak on the behalf of everyone reading this tome when I write that I hope she makes a full recovery. Those of you who wish to make a donation so as to help with Meg’s medical expenses can do so via Paypal or by dropping off money, checks and donations for the auction at Permanent Records:
Otherwise I’ll post updates, including the details regarding the auction/fundraiser, as I receive them. Stay safe out there folks!
