Via the CCGH newsgroup:

Fine artists and photographers invite the general public to visit their studios over the November 8th & 9th  weekend,noon – 7 PM.   The two dozen participating studios are located within easy walking distance of each other.  Expect to see a wide range of art,including painting, photography and ceramics.  By going directly to an artist’s studio you can see a larger collection of the artists work and more variety than you would see at a gallery show. You can see what your Brooklyn neighbors have been creating and see how hard they have been working to bring you beautiful items. This is   experience, walking through the studios of several very different artists.

A great annual tour to allow neighbors to see what our artist neighbors have been working on in 2014.

This link below will show you art of the artists who are participating. It also links to our websites. Maps of all the artists can be obtained on line or at many shops in the area and at  the studio of any of the artists.

Speed hump requests meeting at CB7 on March 12

Seems speed hump (bump) requests have become VERY popular in Greenwood Heights and Windsor Terrace. CB7’s transportation committee is holding a meeting on March 12 at 6:30pm at Community Board 7 (43rd St. and 4th Ave) to discuss SEVEN requests for traffic calming speed humps. Here’s the communities chance to come out and let folks know whether you are for or against the requests that DOT will be presenting to CB7. Some of them are requests from residents on certain blocks, several are via a recent traffic study of 6th Ave (btwn 20th and 24th Sts.).

Some of this info already appeared on the CCGH newsgroup a few weeks ago.

Here’s the official announcement from CB7 with the locations… Continue reading


A reminder about Monday’s SRO/Illegal Community Forum at CB7 that includes presentations by City agencies and CBOs Neighbors Helping Neighbors and the Fifth Avenue Committee. Join your neighbors to discuss this ongoing issue, what the City and CBOs can do to help and what you can do too! In addition, CB7 has Spanish language translation services during the meeting. The most recent press release is here and you can download the English flyer here and the Spanish version here.

Hope to see the community out in force on Monday, March 4 at 6:30pm at CB7 (43rd St and 4th Ave).


The forum is co-sponsored by Brooklyn Community Board 7, CM Gonzalez and CM Lander.

Get your CB7 SRO & Illegal Conversion Community Forum flyer

The event, which will be on Monday, March 4 at Brooklyn Community Board 7, was announced last night at the Board’s monthly meeting. They also have flyers for the SRO/Illegal Conversion Community Forum available at the Board office. Or you can download a PDF version. It is important for folks to resend this info to your neighbors and even better if you can put flyers up in your area (either pick them up or print them out).


It’s important for folks to attend the meeting , listen to the City agencies, have Q&A and report any issues you are aware of. We hope to see a good turn out on March 4.


This is really a great meeting for the community. Great for those who have issues with SROs and illegal conversions in their neighborhoods and also for information that will help folks living illegally, especially if they are displaced and need new housing.

You might not think SRO’s are in our neighborhoods, but they are: Sunset Park, Greenwood Heights, South Park Slope and Windsor Terrace. They have an impact on the community and victimize those who live in these illegal conversions.

This should empower the community, everyone in the community, through education and Q&A from the City agencies and CBOs that will be on hand.

The forum is co-sponsored by Brooklyn Community Board 7, CM Gonzalez and CM Lander. Press release below. We’ll post the flyer when it is available.

Monday, March 4, 2013 @ 6:30 P.M. at the Community Board 7 office, 4201 4th Avenue (entrance on 43rd Street). Continue reading

Windsor Terrace community meeting on Walgreens 10/1

Via the Windsor Terrace Alliance news group:

October 1 at 7 PM is set for the next Windsor Terrace community meeting concerning Walgreens taking over former Key Foods. This will be a great opportunity to be brought up to date on the latest news and developments.

Once again our elected officials: BP Marty Markowitz, State Assemblyman Jim Brennan and City Councilman Brad Lander have been invited to provide updates on their efforts to have Walgreens serve the community.

In addition, Walgreens has been invited to have meaningful representation at the meeting to apprise us on what they will be doing to provide a full-service fresh food market to the neighborhood.

As the prior meetings, this will take place at 7 PM in Shepherd’s Hall of Holy Name Church on Prospect Park West.

Please post this information in many of the apartment buildings, libraries and public places as possible. Also, please spread the word as many in our community will not see this email.

Green Beans Not Walgreens

Most folks in the immediate community know about the hottest topic (even eclipsing the weather) in Windsor Terrace, the loss of the ONLY local retail supermarket to a longterm lease with Walgreens. This is of huge concern to the community, not only due to the lack of food shopping options in the immediate area, but also the dependence of a local food shop for the elderly population of WT, most of who have pedestrian access only.

There have been several protests, meetings and events and now there’s a website, Green Beans not Walgreens. Continue reading
