Not much happening in LIC these days, unless you’re a construction worker. Thus residents have time to attend local meetings and watch local videos.
Meeting #1 – Hunters Point Civic Association, tomorrow night (September 12), 7pm Citylights Building 3rd Fl. Eleni Bourinaris, Queens Borough Director, Government and Community Relations New York City Economic Development Corporation will be joining us for a special briefing to discuss Water’s Edge develpment. Also a discussion on BQX Connector
Meeting #2 – well actually a park clean-up/beautification day organized by the Court Square Civic Association to clean up Court Square Park (where the courthouse is!). Saturday, September 16 of the Court Square Park – 9:30am
Peace Lanterns Festival – also on Saturday, September 16 from 2-6pm at Gantry Plaza State Park. More info here
Gentrification Express, Breaking Down the BQX – video #1, and I don’t think it’s pro-BQX
Citylights Promo Video from 1997 – yeah, this is what we do best, find old cool LIC stuff and share it w/ you. Back in ’97 I had a life, I swear!
