Livable Streets Events

This Week: Streetsblog Happy Hour and More

It’s a packed week on the livable streets calendar, but hopefully you can find some time on Wednesday to come out to Dutch Kills Centraal in Long Island City for the Streetsblog and Streetfilms happy hour. We’d love to meet you! The party gets started at 6 p.m., with half-price drinks, great food, and a raffle to support our reporting and videos. If you can’t make it (or even if you can), you can also contribute to our spring pledge drive online and help us reach our goal of 400 donors by June 1. Every donation helps!

The full complement of events is at the Streetsblog calendar. Here are the highlights:

  • Tuesday: DOT is hosting a Vision Zero pedestrian safety workshop at Lehman College in the Bronx. Tell transportation planners and police about dangerous street conditions in your neighborhood. 6:30 p.m.
