Last week, several members of the North Star met with Keith Wright, our area's Assemblyman, for an informal conversation. Topics ranged from neighborhood concerns (fair housing, slowing traffic, ways to secure children's services) to Wright's history as a politician. The conversation lasted about an hour.
Assemblyman Wright made it clear to all that his office welcomes working with the North Star and our community. The North Star encourages all of us to think about ways of reaching out to Wright's office with project and issues for us all to work on collaboratively.

Police Athletic League, 119th St. and Manhattan Ave.
We're talking Dirt Bikes: Come join us for an discussion about the dirt bikes. Dirt biker reps will be present.
We are hosting a positive conversation between residents and the dirtbikers. As you might know, the police are under orders not to chase bikers, especially after one was killed last year in the Bronx. The bikers themselves are looking to find a place where they can ride in a safer venue. We want this to be a civil but honest exchange centered on finding a way to live together. The conversation will be moderated.
