Quality of life forum connects residents with electeds


BY SAM SPOKONY  |  Residents are invited to attend a quality of life forum at the Hudson Guild on Monday, April 21 at 7pm, where community leaders and elected officials will discuss neighborhood issues and take questions from audience members.

The forum will be hosted by both the Neighborhood Advisory Committee and the Senior Advisory Council of the Hudson Guild, a social services organization that has been helping Chelsea residents with locally based issues for more than 100 years. Seniors are especially welcomed to come and share their concerns about Chelsea’s transforming landscape and their thoughts on what the city administration should focus on for the future.

Topics of discussion will include health, housing, safety, traffic, biking, transportation, noise and weather conditions. A panel of officials including State Senator Brad Hoylman, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, Assemblymember Richard Gottfried and City Councilmember Corey Johnson will open the forum with introductory comments on quality of life, after which they will stay to hear directly from residents.

“New York City changes every day. Those changes can affect your quality of life and it is important to know what services are available to you,” said Councilmember Johnson. “The Neighborhood Advisory Committee and Hudson Guild are excellent community resources and I thank them for helping to make sure New Yorkers can make well informed decisions about their lives.”
