Join Rosie Mendez to discuss improvements to the Tompkins Square playgrounds tomorrow night

City Councilmember Rosie Mendez is taking part in this month's CB3 Parks, Recreation, Cultural Affairs, & Waterfront Committee meeting tomorrow night. The topic: A look at ideas for improving the Tompkins Square Park Playgrounds near East Seventh Street and Avenue B.

As previously noted, Mendez has allotted some $900,000 to renovate the playgrounds.

Based on previous community input, the Parks Department now has some schematic designs for the two spaces... and your thoughts are welcome at the meeting. (Or in the comments. Beer store will already be noted.)

The committee meeting starts at 6:30 at Casa Victoria, 308 E. Eighth St. between Avenue B and Avenue C.

I'll be there. I'm looking forward to the improvements to these two playgrounds. I'd like to see them joined across what is now the Avenue B/E 7th St. entrance.

Just enforcing the no smoking in the park would be a great start

Typical of our politicians today... She'll talk about a playground because it's not controversial. But she has never said a word about the abomination of Astor Place or Mt. Sinai moving... actually removing the 99% so thee 1% could profit off the backs of the middle class and the sick.
