Lots of action on the calendar this week, starting with this afternoon's address by Rep. Jerrold Nadler and continuing with primary voting, a "No Impact Man" livable streets event, and Park(ing) Day 2009.

  • Monday: Congressman Jerrold Nadler speaks on what the reauthorization of the federal transportation bill means for New Yorkers. Sponsored by the Women's City Club of New York. 12:30 - 2 p.m.

  • Friday: Park(ing) Day NYC is a TA/New York City Streets Renaissance collaboration which supports the conversion of parking spots throughout the five boroughs into human-friendly places for a single day. This year, the POP.Park Competition will transform Park(ing) Day NYC from a once-a-year act of reclamation to an every day statement. The winning submission -- transportable, affordable and easy to use -- will add the immediate potential of public space to every block, every day of the year.
