State Senator Daniel Squadron, whose district includes Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens (where he lives), Brooklyn Heights, DUMBO and much of lower Manhattan, will hold his fourth annual Community Convention Sunday, April 22, from 2-5 p.m. He has alternated the site of the conventions between Brooklyn and Manhattan; this year it’s Manhattan’s turn, so it will be at the High School of Economics and Finance, 100 Trinity Place (one block west of Broadway, between Cedar and Thames Streets).
Previous conventions have seen productive discussions on topics of particular interest to Cobble Hill residents like traffic, helicopter noise, schools, Brooklyn Bridge Park (Sen. Squadron is represented on its board of directors), and neighborhood preservation.
There’s more information and a list of topics for this year’s convention, and you can RSVP if you would like to attend, here. You can also RSVP by calling 212-298-5565 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
