    I’m happy about the results. I don’t have a dog, but Greenpoint and Williamsburg residents (Greenpoint, especially) need a dog run. But why is the estimated cost $450,000? That’s a pretty sweet dog run!

    And education is one of my priorities, so it’s good to see PS 8, 31, and 34 gettin’ some lovin’.

    The PlaNYC Million Trees program has only planted half of their target. http://www.milliontreesnyc.org/html/about/about.shtml So the tree planting item project doesn’t seem urgent. Maybe someone can set me straight.
