Happenings On India Street

I am pleased to announce that the park slated to grace site has gotten a thorough revamping. Not only has the wall has been lowered, but there will be no concrete! In the next couple of weeks we can look forward to the Parks Department unveiling this new and improved design. Next month the “India Street Enders” will be having a meeting to discuss these plans and get the 411 from Stephanie Thayer of the Open Space Alliance. So mark your calendar!

India Street Enders Meeting
Wednesday, September 10th, 2008
7: 00 p.m.
Location: tbd

Those of you who are concerned about the welfare of the feral cat colony will be pleased to know I will be helping to relocate them. Which reminds me: I need to contact Neighborhood Cats and sign up for one of their Trap-Neuter-Return workshops!

  2. On the subject of the waterfront, I’m actually curious if anyone knows anything about planning the Bushwick Inlet park. A woman was trying to get locals to attend a meeting back in June or July (it was posted on Brooklyn Vegan) and I missed it, but it’s something I’d like to get involved with and I can’t find this woman’s info (or really any info on this committee other than mentions of this past meeting and that this inlet exists). If anyone knows, please post, thanks!

  6. that sounds much better than a painted parking lot. thanks for providing GWAPP’s email – i live on India and would love to know more about this new park idea.

    on another note about involvement: is there anyone to contact regarding working with the feral cats or any other cat volunteer organizations? BARC gives the brush-off and I know there are other groups out there that might be more open to volunteers.

  10. No problem. For the record, GWAPP presides (sort of) over all the “friends of” parks groups in Greenpoint. If I can’t give you an answer as who to contact, talk to them. They’ll know.

    rowan I’ll talk to you about India Street Park & feral cat workshops. Been a little preoccupied, but I am working up some resources.

Tell me what you're thinking...
