Community Board 7's Community Relations and Long Term Planning Committee along with the Municipal Arts Society of New York presented the second part of the Livable New York Program.
Today's agenda included Arts, Culture, and your community, a mapping exercise, pin ups including a discussion section, and a wrap up and survey questionnaire. Ms. Samelys Lopez the Chair of the committee spoke briefly about the previous meeting, and also briefly about today's goal for the meeting. Community Board 7 District Manager Andrew Sandler also spoke briefly about some of what he and Community Board 7 do. The meeting was then turned over to the representatives of the Municipal Arts Society of New York to continue the agenda as you see in the photos below.

I left early when current 78th A.D. Assemblyman Jose Rivera made it a political event apparently for himself as you can see in the photo above. It must be re-election time for Rivera as he was taping answers by those in the audience, probably to learn what the problems of the district are. Assemblyman Jose Rivera challenged me to a boxing match for some of the things that I have been writing about him. As you can see Assemblyman Rivera you will not bully this member of the press, and I will continue to write about your record (or lack of one). The Democratic primary for New York State Assembly members is Tuesday September 13th.
