A coalition of neighborhood groups, merchants associations, and elected officials representing Downtown and brownstone Brooklyn today announced a town hall meeting to discuss how to address the challenge posed to all New Yorkers by crumbling transportation infrastructure, growing congestion, and rising tolls and transit fares. The focus of the town hall meeting will be a plan put forward by Move NY, a transportation policy group.
“Gridlock” Sam Schwartz – a former NYC Traffic Commissioner – will present the Move NY plan, a leading proposal to address New York City’s numerous transportation needs in a comprehensive fashion. Members of the community will have the opportunity to discuss the plan during break out sessions to take place after the initial presentation. The town hall meeting
is open to the public and will be held on February 19 at 6:00 PM EST at Brooklyn’s 3rd
Avenue YWCA. Interested New Yorkers are encouraged to participate in the conversation on social media using the hashtags #MoveNYBK and #fillthegapNY.
