City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer, along with A Better Way NYC, are rallying this Saturday, January 12th, at 11a.m. on the Promenade at the Pierrepont Street entrance to call for a community-driven solution to the BQE reconstruction. According to A Better Way:
Comptroller Scott Stringer will call on the City to demand more transparency and recommend that a community driven process must be implemented to identify a feasible alternative to the 6-lane highway plan. This will be a press conference, and it is crucial that our community show up in full force!
