Culture on the Cheap
THIS WEEK: Memorial Ride & Walk
Last week I posted an item announcing this year’s annual Memorial Ride & Walk as hosted by the folks at Ghostbikes.org will come to pass March 18, 2012. I have an update to share: our very own “Boulevard of Death”, this being McGuinness, has been added to the itinerary. Given that just last week I had a very nice lady* (and lifelong Greenpointer) recount to me the friends/neighbors she lost on this thoroughfare— needlessly and LONG before this became an issue— I consider this time/attention well spent.
Here are the deets:
1:45-2pm: Gather @ Manhattan Ave & Green St (G Train to Greenpoint Ave)
2:05 Unnamed Memorial, Green Street & McGuinness Boulevard
2:15 Liz Byrne, Kent Street & McGuinness Boulevard
2:25 Unnamed Memorial, Greenpoint Avenue & McGuinness Blvd
2:35 Neil Chamberlain & Unnamed Memorial, Calyer Street & McGuinness Boulevard
2;45 Unnamed Memorial, Norman Avenue & McGuinness Boulevard
2:55 Unnamed Memorial, Nassau Avenue & McGuinness Boulevard
