The Brooklyn Heights Association will hold its annual meeting at St. Francis College, 180 Remsen Street, at 6:30 p.m on Monday, February 27. The meeting will feature a panel discussion, “The BQX Project: Is the City on the Right Track?” “BQX” is the proposed Brooklyn-Queens Connector, a trolley line that would run from Sunset Park, Brooklyn on the south to Astoria, Queens, on the north. Its exact route has yet to be determined, but it would run roughly parallel to the East River with some diversions inland, possibly including one to pass Brooklyn Heights to the east. The discussion will be moderated by James Dwyer, a Pulitzer Prize winning New York Times journalist known for his coverage of transit issues.
Community Service Awards will be presented to long time community activist Irene Janner, Love Our Pool, PS8/MS8 Principal Seth Phillips, and the Pier 6 Legal Team. The meeting is free and open to all, whether or not BHA members.
