The following is a press release from the offices of Councilman David Greenfield:
As part of his ongoing efforts to improve the quality of life for Bensonhurst residents, Councilman David G. Greenfield is hosting a cleanup event along Bay Parkway this weekend in partnership with Assemblyman Bill Colton. All residents are invited to meet at 12 p.m. on Sunday, May 6th in front of St. Athanasius Elementary School at 61st Street and Bay Parkway, where tools and supplies will be distributed. This event comes as a result of a town hall meeting Greenfield held in Bensonhurst last month to discuss ways to improve the neighborhood’s overall cleanliness and to reduce the amount of trash and litter along Bay Parkway.
“This is a great chance for residents to meet their neighbors and join together to keep Bay Parkway clean. A couple of hours can go a long way towards making this important commercial strip more attractive and inviting for residents and shoppers. I am hopeful that this is the beginning of an ongoing effort to eliminate the issues that have plagued Bay Parkway for far too long, and I encourage everyone to come out and show their Bensonhurst pride on Sunday,” said Greenfield.
