THIS WEEK: Community Board 1 Joint SLA/Public Safety Committee Meeting


All things being relative (this is north Brooklyn we’re talking about, after all) this is a pretty brief list. Nonetheless, here it is. If anyone has issues with any of the above establishments, the time to have your say as citizens cometh. Soon!

Mark Your Calendars: Community Board 1 Public Safety Committee Meeting

It is interesting to note that after this agenda was circulated, Ryan Kuonen (who, it should be noted, in addition to being a member of NAG is also a member of Community Board 1) offered a clarification regarding agenda item #2:

…Item #2 will (technically) be a briefing on Weekend Walks events in CB#1, including both Williamsburg Walks and Grand Street Weekend Walks by Ryan Kuonen- NAG [Neighbors Allied for Good Growth] & Artineh Havan – Grand Street Business Improvement District

LAST GASP: 94th Precinct Community Council Meeting & Community Board 1’s Parks Subcommittee Meeting

Both are set to happen the evening of October 11th! Am I the only person who would like to see greater coordination/communication between our Community Board, the Police Department and other community “groups”  so as to prevent overlaps like this? Why should we Greenpointers be forced to, for example, pick and choose between learning more about the tragic (and I suspect preventable) suicide which came to pass at McGolrick Park and what’s on Community Board 1 Parks Subcommittee’s agenda (which happens to be pretty Garden Spot-centric):

1. Presentation on Improvements/Renovation for Cooper Park – by Mr Martin Maher, Chief of Staff/Brooklyn – Parks Department, and Ms. Portia Cook-Dyrenforth, Capital Projects, Brooklyn – Parks Department
2. Proposed Green Thumb Interim Use For 59 Java Street – by Mr. Jack Hammer, NYC HPD.
3. Pathways of McCarren Park – Project status discussion.

In any case, make/take your choice, Greenburgers:

UPDATE, October 11, 2011: Per the revised agenda, item #2 has been cancelled.

Coming To 120 Franklin Street: Van Gogh’s Radio 2.0?

No liquor license hearing notice has been posted, but per the agenda for our local Community Board’s Public Safety Committee agenda this may very well be the case!

You will also notice, dear readers, that Coco 66 (albeit via 68 Greenpoint Avenue) is also on the docket. Hmm…

But back to 120 Franklin Street— and CKTP LLC. After some research I deduced the Greenpoint grapevine may very well be correct. The chap behind CKTP LLC endeavor, Christopher Klusak, has close ties to Van Gogh’s Radio.

Will Van Gogh’s Radio be making a comeback? It certainly appears to be the case. However, there’s still that liquor license hearing meeting on September 27th. Only then will we know for certain…
