When starting a new Livable Streets campaign people will often ask us, "How do I connect with others in my neighborhood and build a working group?" Cantor Benjamin Kintisch is facing this familiar concern in Harlem and Hamilton Heights, and this time we're putting the question to you. If you've had success building a campaign in your area, we want to know how it all started. How did you get the word out off-line and which methods worked best? Respond to this post with your tips for Cantor.

Elsewhere around New York, Livable Streets members have been busy preparing for this weekend's Summer Streets. The Upper West Side Streets Renaissance will be leading a feeder ride starting at Inwood Hill Park and picking up more folks along the way in neighborhoods like Washington Heights and Harlem, while Brooklynites can catch a ride with their TA committee from Grand Army Plaza to Park Ave. and back.

And for those who missed Zozo's appearance at the Summer Streets press conference, there's a new StreetsWiki entry with more details on the mysterious purple creature. Don't miss the Livable Streets Education kid station for more Zozo fun along the route tomorrow.
