Things We May Have Neglected To Mention

So we're definitely behind in our updates, but here are some quick things we thought you might be interested in:

1). Helping Out In Your Community

Alliance of Resident Theaters (ART) and Food Bank for New York City have partnered to collect food four times a year at ART's South Oxford Space. Their latest drive begins today and runs through Monday, June 1st. Bring your donations to the 1st floor lobby at 138 S. Oxford Street during regular weekday office hours or between 9:30am and 1:30pm on weekends. Here's a helpful chart on what food groups are most needed:

If you have any questions, ART can be contacted at (718) 398-3078.

2). Maintenance In The Community

Flatbush Avenue is being repaved between Plaza Street and Atlantic Avenue. The project is scheduled to begin next Thursday, May 14, 2009 (weather permitting). The maintenance is scheduled as exclusively night work. Please contact our Urban Planner, Alfred Chiodo, at (718) 260-9191 if you have any further questions.

3). And Don't Forget Your Mother!

If you're still thinking about ideas for Mother's Day (shame, ya'll), the Prospect Park Alliance offers you to chance to give your mother a tree in Prospect Park.

Brooklyn Designs is also celebrating from May 8-10 at St. Anns Warehouse (38 Water Street, DUMBO).

Lastly, we're going to try to make it to this Brooklyn Blogfest event, which sounds pretty amazing.
