  • PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT ON OUR BLOCK: DISCUSSION WITH ARCHITECTS, 46th WARD – Hospitality Room Monday, July 8th 7pm

    PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT ON OUR BLOCK: DISCUSSION WITH ARCHITECTS, 46th WARD Hospitality Room Monday, 7pm, July 8th You’ve seen the scaffolding covering the front of the elegant, vintage threeflat down the block at 3728 N.

  • 46TH WARD CANDIDATES FORUM AT 3750

    46TH WARD CANDIDATES FORUM GARDEN COURT WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20TH 7:30p – 9p It may be the most influential city election in decades.  And one of the six above will represent us in City Hall —  James Cappleman, Angela Clay, Justin Kreindler, Marianne Lalonde, Jon-Robert McDowell, or Erika Wozniak Francis.
