Everybody knows that Harlem rocks! But did you know that some of that rocking could be the result of an earthquake at the 125th Street fault line?
Come to the March General Meeting of the Mount Morris Park Community Improvement Association and ask Dr. Won-Young Kim, research scientist and professor at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory
and principal investigator of the Lamont-Doherty Cooperative Seismographic Network.
New York sits squarely in the middle of the San Andreas Fault and the mid-Atlantic Ridge, which lies beneath the Atlantic Ocean. And though we may not experience seismic events of the magnitude felt in Japan, Haiti or even California, earthquakes are a viable concern for New Yorkers and a critical element of emergency management and preparedness.
Crime--especially crime prevention--is always a hot topic. Police Officer Victor Pena from the 28th Precinct will be with us to discuss the latest incidents and initiatives and what we can do to help ensure the safety and well-being of our homes, our families and ourselves. If earthquakes and crime don't get your attention,
how about the possibility of shaking things up by getting involved in the community -- yours and ours! We're looking for ideas, interest, innovation and energy to help move MMPCIA's current and planned projects along. Find out what's in store and let us know where you'd like to focus.
