We’ve just returned from the University Settlement, where Councilmember Margaret Chin and State Senator Daniel Squadron were on hand for a festive street naming ceremony. The block of Eldridge between Delancey and Rivington will now officially be named for University Settlement.
The event included a vigorous dragon dance and music from University Settlement’s Early Childhood Center participants. Executive Director Michael Zisser thanked Community Board 3 and the City Council for supporting the street naming, especially appropriate as the settlment house celebrates its 125th anniversary this year.
