New York Shitty Day Ender: From The Unofficial Community Board 1 Yahoo Group
Filed under: 11211, 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn
I have on occasion made mention of the unofficial Community Board 1 Yahoo Group. This is because it is a wonderful way to learn about what is going on in our neighborhood be it upcoming Community Board (and subcommittee) meetings; local events, fund raisers and the like. Conversely, it is an excellent forum to posit questions and/or complaints about matters as mundane as, say, illegal truck traffic or an obstructed sidewalk. By posting your inquiry in this forum it will be brought to the attention of the group’s ~300 members. Among the previous are our elected officials, members of the Community Board proper, Police department(s the 90th and 94th Precinct to name a few), etc. And believe you me when I write this: these people are paying attention! The previous having been written I would like you, kind readers, to envision yours truly shooting a mouthful of claret out of her delightfully robust nose (and all over her lap) when she stumbled upon the following item this evening:
Clearly this is no longer your mother’s— or your grandmother’s— unofficial Community Board 1 Yahoo group! Those of you who wish to participate in the above “party” can and should join the Community Board 1 Yahoo group post haste because, as the above missive clearly states, this is a limited time offer! Who knows, you might learn a thing or two about what is going on in north Brooklyn and want to get involved in the process. And I for one think civic-mindedness is very sexy indeed!
UPDATE, 11:45 p.m.: Wait ladies, you have another chance!
I will not divulge the exact place this party is going down (because I think people should have the right to enjoy such stuff) but I will mention it is (per Google) .1 mile (and a 911 call) away from the 90th Precinct.
