Block Party Planning Session

On Aug. 30, a block party - billed as the first ever in the neighborhood - is being held on Cedar Avenue, between Fordham Road and the Hall of Fame Terrace (opposite University Woods).

A planning session for the event will take place at 11 a.m. this Saturday, at University Heights Presbyterian Church (2617 University Ave.), with the idea of giving local residents an opportunity to discuss what they'd like to see at the party and in their neighborhood at large.

The planning session and the party are being organized by the church and by Brandy Cochrane, founder of Friends of the Woods. (Sponsors include Hands On New York). University Woods, near BCC, is often derided as New York City's worst park, but Cochrane tells me that conditions have improved markedly in recent months, to the extent that she's now organizing park tours instead of clean-ups. Still, that might not save the Woods - the local community board wants to see the land developed.

For information about this Saturday, call (718) 295-1220 or 718-228-9309, or
