THE NYC MARATHON IS COMING TO #FABMILE8
As a reminder, street closures and traffic re-routes will be plentiful, so plan accordingly. Check with the NYPD 88th precinct for closure updates, and we’ll post information as well, on our social media platforms. And, don’t forget to drop by Fowler Square, where we’ll have a collection box for coat donations for New York Cares! Bring a coat and we’ll see you there!
GATES PLAZA IMPLEMENTATION
The NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) began implementation of the new plaza at Gates Avenue in mid-October. There is no parking along Gates Avenue between Vanderbilt and Fulton, and barrels have been placed to block the entrance and exit to that street. DOT will continue to make safety improvements and create the designated pedestrian plaza (including a ground mural) throughout the month. See the updated plans here, and follow FAB’s social media for future announcements.
NYPD LAUNCHES “ASK THE PC”
Over the arc of time, the collective give-and-take will unveil more about the 45th New York City Police Commissioner’s views on an array of important topical matters. “Ask the PC” will facilitate a continuing dialogue. It will also create a regular channel for thoughtful communications designed to deepen the understanding between the public and the police at a pivotal moment for New York City.
