Hi Brooklyn,

While Black History Month is coming to an end tomorrow, you still have a chance to enjoy the free "Brooklyn is Africa: Survival + Persistence = Resistance" exhibit at Brooklyn Borough Hall through Friday, March 3. Open every day to the public between 10 AM to 4 PM, with extended hours on Wednesday, March 1 until 7 PM, you can enjoy a sampling of the largest collection of African art and historical artifacts in the world that happen to live right here in Brooklyn. The collection is owned by curator Eric Edwards, Founder and Executive Director of the Cultural Museum of African Art.

We also want to remind everyone of the upcoming community engagement meeting we're hosting on Monday, March 6, in Coney Island to provide information and allow community members, business owners, and other local stakeholders to share their feedback on the proposed casino in the community. I strongly believe that changes to communities should not be made without actively including all stakeholders in the decision-making process, listening to and addressing their concerns. We hope the Coney Island community can join us for one of two sessions on March 6 from 10 AM – 1 PM or 5:30 – 8 PM at the Coney Island YMCA located at 2980 W. 29th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11224

As always, don't forget that our constituent affairs team is here to help with any issues you might be facing. We’re available for walk-ins every Wednesday from 9 AM to 3 PM at Brooklyn Borough Hall. We’re also reachable by phone (718) 802-3700 or email: AskReynoso@brooklynbp.nyc.gov.

Don’t forget to spread love. It’s the Brooklyn way!

Antonio Reynoso
