East River Park ACTION is a call to make noise and get attention so that our East River Park does not get demolished for a bad and insensitive flood control plan in 2020. New York City can do better.
Lower East Side resident and East River Park fan Pat Arnow developed the website in June 2019 to demand an environmentally just, forward-looking flood control plan that will not deprive our neighborhood of our glorious park for years.
We formed three subgroups:
ACTION—coordinated by Marie de Cenival, firstname.lastname@example.org
- Outreach to people in the park and neighborhood, to city officials, to media, to social media
- Demonstrations, big doings
LEGAL—coordinated by Charles Krezell, email@example.com
- Using the law to fight the environmental and social damage and injustice to our park and community
COMMUNITY PLAN—coordinated by Howard Brandstein firstname.lastname@example.org
- Gaining expertise and developing an environmentally and socially clean and just plan for our neighborhood.
Please join one of the groups or just email if you want to be on our list to participate as we develop plans:
