I was bummed not to be able to make the community garden hearings on Tuesday, but I’ve heard several reports that they went well. There was a line outside waiting to get in, even though my friends reported that at least a quarter of the seats were empty. What was that about?
Dick-head Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe, true to form, wrote an Op Ed for the New York Post (!) that completely misrepresented the issue. Times Up! responded brilliantly — couldn’t say it better myself. Their photos on Flickr of the hearing are pretty great, too.
