One Last Reminder: Aaron Naparstek Going-Away Party Is Tonight

Streetsblog_Party_Banner.jpg

Whether or not you had a chance to RSVP, all are welcome at tonight’s big event. Don’t miss your chance to hang with founding editor Aaron Naparstek and an enticing roster of Streetsblog regulars. Nothing official, but there are rumors that a surprise guest or two may also be in attendance. Regardless, this will be the hottest livable streets-themed karaoke party and fundraiser of the weekend. Guaranteed.

  • Just FYI on the invite, guys: It says to “Take the L, N, Q, R, W to Canal Street.” The L doesn’t stop at Canal. I take you mean the 6? Or the J/M/Z?

    /subway nitpick’d.

  • Thanks, SB, for a great party. Great to meet a lot of the regulars and see a ton of old friends.

    Can we have one every Friday?

  • Dr Manhattan

    Great party and what a terrific venue! Aaron, you gotta do this more often, not leave but give us a reason to meet so many interesting New Yawkers!

  • James

    That really was a great time last night, so cool meeting the many commenters and contributors who make this place the incredible resource that it is.

Times Metro Desk Explains Parking Reform For the Windshield Set

|
In today’s edition, the New York Times took a look at parking policy in Downtown Brooklyn. You wouldn’t expect the Times to explore a wonky topic like parking reform with the same depth as Streetsblog’s coverage of the proposal, but still, the article barely hinted at the huge costs imposed by parking minimums. Scarcely a word was devoted to […]
