Brooklyn Greenway Initiative Meeting Tuesday

McBrooklyn received this email from a friend of the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative:

Tuesday, April 8th
Big Turnout Needed for Greenpoint/ Williamsburg Greenway Meeting

The full board of Community Board 1 will decide on the plan for the physically separated bikeway on Kent Ave and West St. We need a strong showing of support to make the board know the overwhelming desire for these improvements for pedestrians and cyclists. Sign up speak by 6:15 PM
Meeting begins at 6:30pm

Location: Swinging 60's Senior Citizens Center, 211 Ainslie Street, Brooklyn, New York 11211 (Corner of Manhattan Avenue)

The Brooklyn Waterfront Trail is a priority route in the Department of City Planning’s Greenway Plan for New York City, which outlined a vision for a citywide 350-mile network of greenways. The Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway project area now spans 14 miles of Brooklyn waterfront, from Sunset Park to Newtown Creek in Greenpoint.

Was there a large turnout? I just moved into Greenpoint and am looking forward to this Greenway Initiative project. I think it will be great for BRooklyn and for Greenpoint/Williamsberg.
Did work get started along the greenoint waterway?
