Time to Toss Your Old Electronics … Safely!
 

E-wasteAre old computers and other electronic goods cluttering up your storage space?

Dispose of them in an environmentally safe way this weekend at the Electronic Waste Recycling Event sponsored by the Unitarian Church, Brooklyn Heights Association, and other neighborhood religious institutions.

The event will take place on Sunday, May 19th, 10 AM – 4 PM on Pierrepont Street between Monroe Place and Clinton Street.

The Lower East Side Ecology Center accepts a wide range of electronics, but also batteries (both alkaline and rechargeable) and those pesky compact fluorescent bulbs.

Kitchen appliances and smoke/carbon monoxide detectors are not accepted.

Have Your Cake, Eat it Too… and Support the Promenade Gardens

Saturday bodes to be a perfect day to walk the Promenade, admire the plantings that line the walkway, and while you’re out and about, stop by the bake sale hosted by the Promenade Gardens Conservancy.  The PGC - a program of the Brooklyn Heights Association - funds a Parks Department Gardener who supervises the dedicated group of volunteers who are on the Promenade every Tuesday planting and maintaining the gardens for our enjoyment.

To ensure that the Promenade continues to look verdant and colorful, please have your cake and eat it too while supporting a worthwhile cause. The Bake Sale will take place at the Montague Street entrance to the Promenade on Saturday, May 18, 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM (Sunday, May 19 in case of rain).

Don’t Procrastinate, Please Donate. Help the BHA Fight the Battle of the BQE!

Months of organizing and advocacy by the BHA have led to a critical crossroads for the BQE Project.  The ongoing firestorm of community opposition since the DOT unveiled its proposed 6-lane elevated superhighway on the Promenade and the unrelenting efforts of the BHA and A Better Way culminated in the Mayor’s appointment of an expert panel on the day of the BQE Town Hall to study the options that have been presented thus far.

Until we can bid the Promenade Highway a not-so-fond RIP, much more work must be done.  The BHA needs your financial donations to enable us to continue the Battle of the BQE.

We greatly appreciate all those who have contributed already to the BQE Fund and welcome those who would like to make first-time or further donations.
