This handsome fellow was one of the many citizens who attended this evening’s convocation.
Not only am I pleased to announce that the turn out was great, but the community feedback was even better (and totally Greenpoint— which is not, as one attendee noted, “Midtown”). Without further ado, here we go!
Part I: Introduction
- Starting at 6:36: This. MAN. RULES.
- Piquant observation regarding the G train (present and future): “This is not Sim City.”
Part V (The Conclusion)
Those of you who wish to join the effort, should point and click your way to Save Greenpoint’s web site and sign up for their mailing list. In closing, I want to thank everyone who came out this evening— even those who did not speak out. Especially Adam Perlmutter, Esquire.
You see gentle readers, not only was he the “community advocate” who fought the TGE power plant…
but he also happened to be under the hire of George Klein (the fellow behind Greenpoint Landing) to state his case for the 2005 Rezone. The latter is, when you really think about it, why this rally was conducted in the first place.
This one’s for you!
