Attention Park Lovers! Daniel Squadron Press Conference

Daniel Squadron, candidate for State Senate in our district (the 25 th District) , is holding a press conference tomorrow, saying essentially that we need a real Brooklyn Bridge Park, a park without luxury towers, and one built NOW, so that our children can play in a park that is truly public. He is trying to bring out a lot of families with kids so that he can make this message clear and visual. He asks for your support, especially families with their children, who will naturally be amongst its greatest users!

WHAT: Press Conference
WHEN: TUESDAY August 19 at 2pm
WHERE: Pier 6, at the End of Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn


With the "Protect Our Homes" petition, CORD was formed in May, 2007. This petition arose as an overwhelmingly negative response to the coming of the over-sized 360 Smith Street Development at the corner of Smith Street and Second Place (Aka Oliver House; aka 131 Second Place). This petition, which had well over three thousand signatures, led to a new zoning text amendment in summer of 2008.
