Friends & Neighbors,
Mark you calendars! The 2nd District Candidate forum is coming up on Wednesday, April 22nd! Join us for an evening of conversation with Second Councilmanic District Candidates Kenyatta Johnson and Ori Feibush. The evening will be moderated by WNYC reporter, author of the "Christie Chronicles" and neighborhood resident Matt Katz. We also want to hear from you, our residents! What questions do you want to ask the 2nd District candidates? Send us your questions and choose the topics you think are most important to our neighborhood: Send us your questions here! The event will be held in the Chester A. Arthur auditorium (20th and Catharine). Doors open at 6:30pm and the program begins promptly at 7pm.
Do you want to leave your mark on the Grays Ferry Triangles Plaza? Join us on Sunday, April 19th to Paint the Plaza! To celebrate the one-year anniversary of this urban refuge we'll be painting a mural (above) onto the asphalt to further beautify this great community space! No experience or tools necessary, just be sure to sign up! The paint day is very weather dependent, so please sign up for as many days as you can. You will be contacted by email beforehand if the paint day is on or off.
There are numerous events coming up this week (and weekend) in the neighborhood! Check them out below:
