As long as we’re on the subject of Brooklyn, real estate and what’s fair and not fair, wouldn’t it be nice to be involved before decisions like this get too far along for you to make an impact? After all, nothing is worse than impotently bitching and moaning about something that you might have had an opportunity to change for the better. Neighbors Allied for Good Growth feel that way too (well, they probably say it nicer than we did), and to that end, are having a community meeting tonight at The Woods (48 South 4th Street) to discuss the new plans for the Williamsburg waterfront. And you won’t be spitting the wind here: the developers will be there too.
NAG is a grassroots organization that has been fighting for sustainable development in Williamsburg since 1994. And clearly, if there’s ever been a time to get involved with them, it’s now. Whether you hate the proposed Two Trees development, like it, or tolerate it more than the previous proposed development, now is the time to make your voice heard. The meeting is starting 6pm tonight, then from 6:30 to 7:15 Two Trees will make their case for why this is a good development. Then there’ll be a 45 minute period for questions from the audience from 7:15 t0 8. Try to keep it clean if you’ve got a question, since it’s not like Two Trees reps had to agree to this.
