There’s been general forums, education forums, healthcare forums, and now another critically important one… PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION. Can you get to a bus or train safely? Can you even cross the street safely? From 10:00am-12:00 noon on Wednesday, June 19 at Baruch College you can ask the candidates yourself!
Thanks to Maria Pagano at Carroll Gardens Neighborhood Association for the notice alert.
