Just 68 degrees today – rain in the afternoon. Coming up today, kids and activists will gather on the steps of City Hall at 4pm to protest Mayor Bloomberg’s cuts to after school programs. The Department of Transportation will brief Community Board 3 on the reconfiguration/beautification of Allen and Pike Streets. We’ll have a look at the Hester Street Collaborative’s efforts to engage communities in transforming public spaces. And we’ll have our chat with Jerome Chang of Dessert Truck Works.
