Community Board 2 to Hold “Washington Square Park Speak Out” on Performance Crackdown Monday, December 19th

Opera Under the Arch! (August 2011)

As I reported in yesterday’s post on the performance crackdown at Washington Square (and the media surrounding it), CB2 plans to come out of hiding on issues relating to WSP and hold a public forum.

Mark your calendar!
Community Board 2 Washington Square Park Speak Out — Monday, December 19th, 6:30 p.m. at the NYU Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South, 8th Floor.

A note: No women spoke at Sunday’s press conference on this issue. It’s true there are less female performers at the park. I wonder why that is? I encountered these two women in the summer singing opera under the Arch. The Arch is known for its acoustics; as Katie Kat, left, said, the Arch is “the spot to sing.”

Thanks & Almost There! Blogger Fundraising Appeal

Seen on the Fountain Plaza

Hi. Thank you to those of you who responded to my initial fundraising appeal three weeks ago. Much appreciated. I wanted to put forth one more appeal with a specific goal : to raise $200 which would allow me to do some blog upgrading. Of course, any and all help appreciated. $10… $20… more ! Every bit helps.

Reader support will help keep this blog going and the news coming. There never seems to be a lack of things happening at – or related to – Washington Square.

Thanks for whatever you can do —
