Save Our Seaport Invites The Public To Its Fourth Town Meeting

Save Our Seaport invites the public to its fourth Town Meeting

Monday, June 23, 2014 6:30-7:30PM

Titanic Memorial Park, Fulton and Water Street (Map)

Guest Speakers include:

Michael White, Citizens Defending Our Libraries

*

Save Our Seaport is hosting a series of Town Meetings to talk and walk about New York’s South Street Seaport Historic District.

Developing and preserving the NY South Street Seaport Historic District is a two-fold challenge. It requires a responsible development plan which guarantees the economic viability of the District while also maintaining, preserving and celebrating the historic importance of this integral part of our city’s history.

SOS invites the public—New Yorkers and visitors to our city alike—to examine development that preserves the view of the iconic Brooklyn Bridge and the Tall Ships, re-establishes the vibrancy and color of the Seaport District, fully engages the educational work of the South Street Seaport Museum, maintains ties to an active waterfront, and locates a world class food mecca in the New Amsterdam Market.
