Archive for February, 2011

Here are two upcoming events that may be of interest to the waterfront community:

1) I recently posted about the plans to develop Brooklyn’s Four Sparrow Marsh. A tip of the hat goes to Matthew Wills for the date, time, and place for the rescheduled public meeting to discuss the plans: February 7 (Correction: February 17), 2011, at 7:00 p.m. in the Kings Plaza Community Room, 5100 Kings Plaza. Matthew has a ton of information about the marsh and the development plans on his blog.

2) The Working Harbor Committee presents its Annual Winter Film Evening and Panel. At 6:00 p.m. on March 20 at the Community Church of New York (40 East 35h Street), there will be a screening of the documentary Shipping Out: The Story of America’s Seafaring Women. The film “explores the history, mythologies and attitudes which limited women’s participation in seafaring until recent times.” The screening will be preceded by a reception and followed by a panel discussion. Tickets are available here.
