Some of the things happening on the Lower East Side today:
–Community Board 3’s land use committee meets at 6:30 p.m. at Seward Park Extension, 56 Essex St. Among the items up for discussion: Proposals for the abandoned trolley station below Delancey Street. As you might recall, CB3 complained to the city about the board’s lack of input before the Economic Development Corp. put out a request for ideas from developers. The leading plan for the space, of course, is the Lowline underground park.
