Oh shoot, nearly past the point of there being any point in posting this now, but just in case - there's a meeting tonight about Newtown Creek that should be interesting for local boaters & waterfront fans (especially those in the neighborhoods of Bushwick, Williamsburg and Greenpoint in Brooklyn; and Maspeth, Ridgewood, Sunnyside and Long Island City in Queens). Full details here.
I learned about while I wasa passing out flyers for next monday's PortSide NewYork meeting - stopped to talk to the gentleman who was working at the Riverkeeper table at the farmer's market near the Gowanus Old Stone House Park & he told me about it. The NYCKayaker list has been discussing it all week - I can't make it myself but I'd meant to at least post it here - with no home computer, I spaced until now. Better late than never, but sooner would've been better. :(
