Brooklyn Greenway Initiative Benefit Tomorrow

Brooklyn Greenway Williamsburg

The Brooklyn Greenway Initiative is holding a fundraising benefit event on the "beach" at the new East River State Park in Williamsburg tomorrow (6/28). The Greeway is the wonderful new waterfront linear park that would run from Greenpoint to Red Hook. It is at a fairly advanced stage of planning, but still faces hurdles as the task of assembling land from a myriad of property owners and gaining approvals from multiple public entities is a complicated one. In any case, the fund raiser will feature cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and music. Streets Blog, which has worked hard to get out information about the Greenway projects says of the event:
If you are not already involved in the Greenway, this is a great chance to get in on the ground floor of shaping the future of Brooklyn’s waterfront and, in the process, creating a more livable city.
Tickets are not inexpensive as this is a fundraising event, but you can buy tickets online here, and the after-party from 8:30-10:30 is $25. The fundraiser itself runs from 6:30-8:30 and those tickets include the after-party.
