We were pleased by the happy coincidence of long-awaited arch scaffolding removal on the very same day as our event. However, the problem of a dreary street level facade remains. PSCC is working to quickly schedule the promised (by MTA) appearance of representatives at a PSCC meeting, intended to provide an community update on scheduled MTA work. We also look forward to working with the MTA to schedule a design event at the transit hub when all station scaffolding has been removed.
Yes, it was “bracingly” cold on Friday, but we were joined by a large number of community partners on that blustery day. Here are 2 photos taken of the event, one of which features both the outgoing Assembly-person, Joan Millman, and her to-be-inaugurated-in-January replacement, Jo Anne Simon. Both are 100% behind us in this effort, and we appreciate their support.
The Forth on Fourth Avenue (FOFA) Committee would like to thank all its members (some newly joined), the Park Slope Civic Council Trustees and all our partners in support of this event. We look forward to continued work on this issue together.
