I have a little bit of a last-minute announcement for you: I’ll be joining a group discussion this afternoon at the Transition Tent in Manhattan. Located at Canal St. and 6th Ave., the tent has been established by a variety of NYC groups, and it’s designed to be a part of the “open” transition from Mayor Bloomberg to Mayor de Blasio, and at 6 p.m. today, I’ll be a part of the Citizens’ Happy Hour, hosted by The New American Tavern. Here’s the listing:
Join us for spiced cider, beer, wine, snacks and civic conversation. During this Citizens’ Happy Hour, each table will host discussions on themes of interest to you such as: music, education, life for artists in NYC, access to healthy foods and more. At the end of the hour each table will summarize their conversation and present a relevant policy recommendation to the rest of the group.
I’ll be talking transit and transportation. I’m sure we’ll hit on subways, buses, bikes, roads and safe streets. You can find out more about the Transition Tent right here, and RSVP for the event either on Facebook or Eventbrite. It’ll be an interesting way to spend an hour on Sunday afternoon.
