Totally disgusting: a city barge accidentally dumped a bunch of sewage sludge into the East River last Saturday. They say it's not toxic like chemicals, but don't go swimming or fishing in the River. Bio waste dumped in the East River makes the baby Jesus cry.
And what's up with the SUV violence at the nightclubs on Steinway?
And even though they say it might rain tomorrow, the meteorologists are often wrong. I'm hoping they are this weekend, so that the Winter Bike Tour can happen:
Join Partnership for Parks’ Astoria and Long Island City Waterfront Parks Catalyst Project and Transportation Alternatives on a weekend afternoon bike tour of the planned Queens East River Greenway. See the planned greenway up close and get inspired to help make it a reality. Ride the greenway route and neighborhood streets and visit Queensbridge, Rainey, Socrates, Astoria and Ralph Demarco Parks, which will all be connected by this new waterfront greenway.
The ride is scheduled for Saturday, February 4, at 1PM. Meet at Gantry Plaza State Park, 48th Avenue and the East River.
In case of inclement weather, the ride will be held on Sunday, February 12, at 1PM. But call 917-902-9165 on Saturday to check to see whether things are on or off for the ride.
