Join the Fight for Bushwick Inlet Park

by GWAPP on

As heard at the recent Town Hall and reported in The New York Times, the Williamsburg/Greenpoint communities are fighting to transform Norman Brodsky’s waterfront property into public parkland, as promised in the 2005 rezoning.

A decade since the rezoning – with just a slice of Bushwick Inlet Park developed – last January’s CitiStorage fire has reignited the “Where’s Our Park?!” campaign as the community faces a real threat to our promised waterfront parkland.

On Monday, February 16 at 7:30pm, please join your neighbors for an organizing/strategy session on the fight for a fully realized Bushwick Inlet Park. Together we will develop an advocacy campaign and plan our kick off rally that will take place on the steps of City Hall on Thursday, March 12 at 1pm.

We’ll be discussing ideas and resources, such as: PR, graphics, flyer/poster design, printing, social media, creative ideas for demonstrations and community-wide outreach (buildings, orgs, schools, churches…).
