Please join GWYSL and 500+ other neighbors and community groups to RALLY on the steps of City Hall, this coming Thursday March 12, 1-2pm.
Here's the story:
Did you know that the land where our BIP soccer field now sits used to be an Enterprise Rental Car lot?
If the community had sat idly by, there would be no soccer field, and not any kind of open space. With community engagement, great things happen.
In 2005 as part of the changes in Williamsburg, the mayor promised park front on the river all the way to Bushwick Inlet.
Instead, a ten year long, ridiculous and frustrating saga finds that promise is unfulfilled.
We need a massive and unrelenting community showing in support of a 28-acre park along North Brooklyn’s waterfront, promised to our community by the city in 2005.
Without a strong community showing, the new park will not happen.
Here’s all you need to know, including a toolkit of materials to help spread the message: www.bushwickinletpark.org
