Gale Brewer, our new (and former) City Council member is already generating controversy with her recent attack on rapid-delivery apps. What is her take on Covid rules, homelessness, schooling, crime, and other issues confronting the neighborhood?
Find out on Tuesday, January 18, when she and Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine (funny how their titles were just reversed!) will appear at a virtual forum presented by the UWS Coalition of Block Associations and Community Groups (UWS Coalition). City Council Member Shaun Abreu, representing District 7, which includes Manhattan Valley, is also a potential panelist.

Time: 6:30-7:30 PM
Meeting Link: YouTube live stream @ https://youtu.be/mYCY3352oXo (Advance registration is not required)
To submit a question for Brewer, Levine, or Abreu, send an email to upperwestside firstname.lastname@example.org. The questions will be shared with the panelists in advance of the event, and those attending via the YouTube livestream can submit questions during the meeting using the chat room feature.
The UWS Coalition is one of the positive outcomes of the pandemic, formed in the spring of 2021 to support and connect the many existing block associations and community groups on the Upper West Side, and to foster the creation and success of new ones. This is the first in 2022 of a series of monthly forums that will be presented by the Coalition. February’s forum will feature local New York State elected officials.
