de Blasio town hall, June 2017

‘Tis the season for town hall meetings.

Tonight, Mayor Bill de Blasio and outgoing City Councilmember Rosie Mendez will co-host a town hall – this time with City Council District 2 denizens.

The mayor sure is making the rounds this election year. This past June, Lower East Siders had a chance to lob questions at de Blasio and Councilmember Margaret Chin concering several hot-button neighborhood issues, including the Rivington House scandal and the overdevelopment of Two Bridges.

District 2 includes a swath of territory including the East Village, Gramercy Park, Kips Bay, part of the Lower East Side, Murray Hill, and Rose Hill.

The District 2 iteration is happening at P.S. 188, The Island School, at 442 E. Houston St. (at the corner of East Houston. and Baruch Drive). Doors are at 6 pm, and the program will begin at 7pm.
