An outdoor event that seeks to provide residents with an opportunity to weigh in on the future of two publicly-owned properties in Long Island City will take place Saturday.
The event, which will be held at Queensbridge Park from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., aims to solicit opinions on the fate of the Dept. of Education building on Vernon Boulevard and the city’s sanitation garage on 21st Street.
The gathering, called Public Land in People’s Hands, will also provide attendees with information on how community land trusts (CLT) work—as well as tenants’ rights with regard to NYCHA housing. A number of tables will be set up inside the entrance to the park at 41st Avenue and Vernon Boulevard.
