Rally Today for Elizabeth St Garden * Monthly Police Neighborhood Meeting Wed * SoHo Memory Project Launch Party
Rally Today for Elizabeth Street Garden
Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) has sent a notice demanding removal of all of the statuary and sculpture in our Elizabeth Street Garden, effectively destroying this treasure before any official determination of the City’s plan for development has been reached.
Today our community will rally to speak out against the destruction of one of the city’s most beautiful and tranquil gardens.
The rally is from 2 to 4 pm at Elizabeth Street Garden, between Spring and Prince Streets. Bring friends, bring signs and make our voices heard.
Monthly Police Neighborhood Meeting Wednesday
NYPD has initiated a new program, Neighborhood Policing, a return to the “cop on the beat.” You may have seen more foot patrols walking the streets recently.
As part of the program, our neighborhood officers meet monthly with us in SoHo to identify and solve local quality-of-life and crime concerns. They want to hear from you about what it will take to make us feel safe and secure.
When Wednesday, November 7. Doors open at 6:00 for refreshments and the meeting begins at 6:30.
Where: Scholastic, 130 Mercer Street, 12th Floor

SoHo Memory Project Launch Party
The SoHo Memory Project is a delightful and informative website and traveling exhibition that documents the cultural, social, political, and urban history of SoHo. If you haven’t visited it, do so now at sohomemory.org
The Memory Project will host a party to celebrate the launch of its new reimagined and redesigned website.
The website’s documentation spans the course of SoHo from colonial times to the present, with focus placed on the decades between 1960-1980 when SoHo was a thriving artists’ community.
