"Is it not cruel to let our city die by degrees, stripped of all her proud monuments, until there will be nothing left of all her history and beauty to inspire our children? If they are not inspired by the past of our city, where will they find the strength to fight for her future?" Jacqueline Kennedy

Reserve A Free Rain Barrel For Pick-Up In Carroll Park On Sunday, June 3rd

Despite the endless rain these last few days, drier and hotter summer weather is bound to be in the forecast.  Why not plan ahead and order a free rain barrel for your garden to take care of your flowers?  Not only does collecting rainwater for your plants cut down on your water bill, it will also reduce the amount of sewage from overflowing into local waterways like the Gowanus Canal when it rains.

To reserve your free barrel, contact Assemblywoman Jo Anne Simon's office at 341 Smith Street via telephone at 718 246 4889 or by email at  simonj@nyassembly.gov.
Pick up is on Sunday June 3, 2018 from 11 to 3 pm in Carroll Park.

Spread the word and let's make this place a greener place.

Mosquito breeding tanks. It’s so warm here in nyc I don’t think these are the best idea. People will leave the caps off and
Make a nice place for mosquitos to breed.
