On the Harlem Watch: Will the 135th Street Marine Transfer Station Go Green?

05Jan09

In which The Gay Recluse helps to spread the word.

This note came in from Savona Bailey-McClain, a Harlem resident/community leader (and TGR reader!) who’s involved in uptown planning.

In addition to the West Harlem Art Fund [which btw sponsored these awesome storefront installations — ed.], I also chair Waterfront & Economic Development for Manhattan Community Board 9 in West Harlem. We are being given permission from the Mayor’s Office to begin a community planning dialogue for the former 135th Street Marine Transfer Station. The 1st dialogue will be will be held at Broadway Housing, 583 Riverside Drive @ 135th Street, 7th floor, on Tuesday, January 6th at 6:30 p.m. It will include presentations on “green” jobs, infrastructure and projects. President-elect Obama stated that he wants to support a “green” future for the country — why not in West Harlem?

Thanks Savona, and why not, indeed? We encourage all of our uptown readers to attend to help the 135th Street Marine Transfer go green!
