"We are a group of neighbors who want to make Parkside Avenue into the best street it can be. This summer and fall, we're organizing a contest, and will be awarding cash prizes for the best plan to redesign Parkside between Prospect Park and Flatbush. We're hoping to bring the whole community together -- neighbors, merchants, commuters, elected officials -- to get the boldest and best ideas: a complete renovation of the historic subway station? a farmer's market in the park? a community center in the derelict building? a mural on the back of Duane Reade?
"Come hear about the Parkside Project, and learn how you can get involved, this Monday, May 16, at 7:30pm, at Senator Eric Adams' offices, 572 Flatbush Avenue."
I can vouch for the fact that Rudy puts on a good slide-show-song-n-dance. I got a sneak peak when he and I met with State Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries just this past Thursday. I took this picture of Rudy and Hakeem palling around after. I'm going to tell you right now that Jeffries is GOING places. crazy map to see how, perhaps, one of the problems with exacting change from this street is its insane locating at the furthest reaches of a dozen elected officials districts.
See you Monday.
