Tuesday WATER, Thursday BLOGS, Saturday BOOKS!
On Tuesday is the last chance for public input (in-person, at least) for the Vision 2020 Plan to make NYC's waterfront more tangible for all New Yorkers. A View from Brooklyn has a great write up on the draft proposal.
And on Thursday is the Cobble Hill Association's Fall General Meeting that host a panel of local bloggers to discuss how blogs have transformed neighborhood news. It will include Rich Calder of the NY Post, Tobey Grumet of Bococaland.com, John Loscalzo (aka Homer Fink) of Brooklynheightsblog.com, and Katia Kelly of Pardonmeforasking.blogspot.com
And on Saturday, October 16th, the CHA is sponsoring a free Book Swap at the Long Island College Hospital (LICH) Sitting Park located at Henry and Pacific Streets in Cobble Hill, from 11 AM until 3 PM.
The idea for the Book Swap is simple: bring a book and get a book. LICH staff members will also be on hand to meet the community and will conduct free blood pressure screening and an asthma information table at the park. Books will also be available for sale at $1 or less. All proceeds and remainder books will be donated to the Hospital by the Cobble Hill Association.
This low-key, neighborly event is the perfect time to meet neighbors and support our local hospital, too.
