Bright Street Redevelopment-Bright & Varick
Subcommittee will present the latest information on the current status of the proposed development on 268 Varick St. (the corner of Bright & Varick, across from the main entrance of PS3/MS4 school)
The redevelopment plan and proposed project is for an extremely high density (87 units) development - over 4x what is allowed in the Van Vorst neighborhood. It also has ZERO parking provisions. How this project is being allowed is very concerning for all in the neighborhood and sets dangerous precedents for the surrounding communities. So please come if you want to learn more, get involved or at least stop in and sign our petition of support.
FILMS IN VAN VORST
It truly is the end of summer. Films in Van Vorst finished up September 4th with the funny & touching SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK. We are so grateful to all our volunteers who schlepped popcorn machines, movie screens, speakers, wires...for 3 months!!!! Thanks to all!
Our labor was free but the movies were not....Each film cost us close to $300 dollars. The Van Vorst Park Association was only able to bring the films to the Park with the generosity of Friends of Van Vorst Park and our wonderful donors. Please support them. By supporting them we thank them. Or feel free to donate on the Films in Van Vorst webpage www.filmsinvanvorst.com
