These are strange days indeed, but with common sense, and simple human decency, we will make it through this together, hopefully with a greater awareness of why we choose to live in the City in the first place.
Some of our major concerns are Traffic, Rogue Bicyclists, Garbage, Noise , Pollution and Over-development,
but we are always open to concerns of our neighbors!
How about some good news?
We are so lucky to live so close to Central Park. The Conservancy has done such an amazing job keeping the park in post card shape, that a brief walk through it can knit almost any raveled sleeve! And finally let me discuss something important to us all. The Neighborhood Association exists from a very small grant bestowed to us by our council representative. This is barely enough to keep our website up and running. If we are going to have a voice in this neighborhood, OUR neighborhood, we need to raise some money to help get our voices heard. Better funding for us would help us grow our membership, extend our outreach, and gain local authority, to make sure our views are heard. We have recently improved the website to allow donations from credit cards, so please check it out, and help us grow and represent you! Even small contributions are very much appreciated.
