Once this grey weather clears we’ll post some more pictures here of the new public shoreline area in all its glory. (For now, take a look at these photos from OSA). Stay tuned! One more bit of our shoreline is ours – yeah!
Laura is a new-ish addition to the Greenpoint community, moving here in 2007 with her husband Jonathan Fox and their Boston Terrier, Buster Brown. The family is recently joined by one Jasper Fox, last seen drooling on a non tree-lined stretch of sidewalk near you. Laura abandoned a life of glamour and excitement as a network news producer in Manhattan for a life of excitement and glamour in North Brooklyn, where she is renovating a home on Guernsey Street which dates back to 1872. Her involvement with community work began after she misunderstood her neighbor, Trina McKeever, believing that an invitation to join forces as Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park was the promise of a permanent boat slip on the East River. She soon discovered an outlet for her steady tiller hand, helping to set up the Community Committee for the Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn and serving as the group’s first co-chair. Laura joined the board of GWAPP in 2012.
