Numbers and Links for September 9, 2019
Ask the Borough President Events
Tuesday, September 10th, at Brooklyn Borough Hall
I will be joined by fellow first responders and victims' families when my administration hosts its sixth annual 9/11 remembrance event to honor those lives lost during and since the tragic terrorist attacks in 2001. This commemoration will be the first since the passing of NYPD detective Luis Alvarez and, as in past years, will feature a banner with the names of all 266 Brooklyn residents who died that day, which for the duration of the commemoration, is displayed at the top of the steps behind Brooklyn Borough Hall.
SUMMER LUNCHTIME JAZZ CONCERTS
Every Friday through September 27th, in Columbus Park Plaza, behind Brooklyn Borough Hall
A free and open to the public jazz series sponsored by my office, in partnership with Downtown Brooklyn Partnership and the Jazz Foundation of America that are held outdoors from noon to 1:30 PM. Featured artists include the Danny Mixon Trio, Tulivu's Seasoned Elegance, Gene Ghee Quartet, and Greg Lewis Organ Monk.
COMMUNITY CONVERSATION– Clark Street Subway Station
Monday, September 16th at St. Francis College, from 6:00 – 8:00 PM
I will join with State Senator Brian Kavanagh, Assembly Member Jo Anne Simon, Council Member Stephen Levin, Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez and NYC Transit president Andy Byford in addressing the Clark Street subway station. MTA NYC Transit plans to replace elevators at the Clark Street 2/3 subway station in Brooklyn Heights. This subway station has no stairs, and the renovations may result in the station being closed, or there being reduced station operations during the replacement project.
Sunday, September 29th
Borough residents and visitors are invited to the 45th anniversary of Brooklyn's largest street fair, running along Atlantic Avenue. Food, arts, crafts, cultural expressions, resources, and general good fun and neighborly vibes will be on display, in the spirit of promoting One Brooklyn.
