December 4, 6:30 p.m. at Hostelling International NYC
The rest of the year is going to pass by like a flash now that Thanksgiving is behind us. I hope you had a good one and are resting comfortably amidst meals of leftover carb-on-carbs. And yes, the cranberry relish counts as a veggie.
In preparation for December's competing demands for our attention, there are several dates to pencil in on your December calendar.
• The first is coming this Wednesday, December 4, from our friends over at the Bloomingdale Neighborhood History Group about how NYC's waterways contributed to the city's development. I hope there will be something juicy about the arrival of the obelisk of Thutmose III that stands outside the Met Museum which came via the shore. Look for my next Throwback Thursday post on this. The flyer for this talk is below.
• On Thursday, December 5, save your evening for a town hall on our vacant store fronts to be held at the Ethical Culture Society. More to come on that tomorrow but also see this link to the WSR piece..
• On Wednesday, December 11, at 1:30pm, Community Board 7 will be offering up "The Senior Experience" a resource fair for older adults (flyer with location and more information to post shortly)
• And, of course, December 21 for the Block Association Solstice Caroling! The song sheet and meet up details are available on our home page.
More information to come on the above. See below for the BNHG talk on December 4.
See you in the neighborhood!
