Working on the NTHCCC Publicity

The team keeps coming up with opportunities for PR and with such a great project there should be many. NAG and PFI thank CitiStorage, owner Norm Brodsky, and Brooklyn Brewery for their contributions of $38,000 plus for seed dollars to get the fundraising efforts started.

Teddy's celebrates Brooklyn Day, and funds raised went to the Northside Town Hall project. Brooklyn borough president Marty Markowitz attends and receives honors for his continual role in celebrating the heritage and growth of Brooklyn. Staff of both Neighbors Allied for Good Growth and People's Firehouse Inc. receive awards for their demonstrated commitment to housing advocacy for Williamsburg and Greenpoint. Thank you to Rich Mazur of North Brooklyn Development and Tony Argento of Broadway Stages for the final bid on the subway series tickets - hope you enjoyed the game!

Join the Fun!

This Saturday the L Magazine and NAG kicked off their annual event, Williamsburg Walks, turning busy Bedford Ave into a pedestrian only zone. The first weekend of the month long event was a success. Everyone came out to see what was happening, even our friends from Sesame Street!
