We remain vigilant about bars requesting late closings —as late as 4 am — as part of their application for a liquor license. These applications require neighborhood outreach before being heard by Community Board 2, currently conducting hearings via zoom. Please join us in reviewing and commenting on these applications, to ensure that late-night hours, noise, patrons, and traffic do not affect our quality of life. If you have an issue with an already established business, please email us and also contact our NCOs (Neighborhood Community Officers). CB2's monthly calendar of hearings is published online and sent to members of the mailing list. Please get in touch if you'd like to join us (even if it's just for one meeting). More details on our local issues page.
Jane Street's annual bulb planting on Saturday, October 30, was a great success. Jane Streeters gathered to plant 1,000 (!) bulbs in the tree pits that rim the Jane Street Garden at 8th Avenue.
Thank you to everyone who donated their time and money to make the West Street Park a reality. Your membership dues can now be earmarked for new plantings on this formerly barren stretch along the highway between Jane and Horatio. Come see for yourself!
