THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED!
University Settlement has been fighting, with a coalition of our Lower East Side neighbors for the return to public use of the Stanton Street Building which is currently closed because the NYC Parks Department uses the building for storage.
The northern end of the Sara D. Roosevelt Park (where the building is located) needs some TLC, and we think opening the Stanton Building to public programming for our little ones, youth, and elders is a great place to start.
The Parks Department has finally agreed to look for an alternate storage facility. So we are celebrating with our NYC Councilmember Margaret Chin, and other elected officials, this Thursday with a press conference. Join us!
