Thanks to everyone who came out Tuesday night to Eastwood — you made our first holiday party a big success!
We were so proud to be able to honor Linda Jones and Michael Marino, two local heroes who have donated countless hours on the Community Board and in the neighborhood. We particularly wanted to acknowledge their contributions to Seward Park and Corlears Hook Park, which have never looked better and are in store for more improvements thanks to their hard work.
Thanks also to our Hosts for the evening, who contributed more than absolutely necessary to help us close out our first year:
- Councilmember Margaret Chin
- District Leader Caroline Laskow
- District Leader Paul Newell
- Daria Segalini
- Diego Segalini
- Judith Wind
- Jeremy Sherber
- Courtney Allison
- Ian Rosenberg
- Laure Travers
- Kenny Wind
- William Rockwell
We were honored to be joined by elected officials from our neighborhood — Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez, NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer — plus a few not from our neighborhood, along with many of the judges and candidates for civil court and supreme court we were able to meet during the year.
