do you count ravenswood as part of astoria or lic? wanna know if I can be proud of my old neighborhood
Yes, sure! (I mean, yes, you should totally be proud of your old neighborhood, regardless of whether I put awkward photos of it online. Which, actually, I don’t think I have yet. But I do think of it as part of the greater Astoria empire.)
Come to the Community Board 1 meeting tonight, 7pm, Astoria World Manor, 25-22 Astoria Blvd. Dept of Transportation will be making a presentation on CitiBikes, so if you want them here, it’s time to start saying so.
Bonus! Astoria World Manor is a stunning monument of AsUg! I, for one, am thrilled to get to go inside, without getting married. If I’d known all along that local politics came with dazzlingly ugly chandeliers (CB1 meetings are there every 3rd Tues of every month), I would’ve gotten involved years ago!
[UPDATE post-meeting: Hot damn. DoT rep said bikeshare will happen no matter what! And new councilman Costa Constantinides said he supports it. If you want it to happen faster, keep an eye out for ways to give feedback on dock locations—the DoT will be setting up a map online to take suggestions, and there will be meetings. Oh, there will be meetings.]
