Mingle with Brooklyn businesses and support the completion of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway at the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative’s annual networking event. The fundraising event on Monday, November 13 gathers supporters and business leaders from Brooklyn’s major economic hubs to raise funds to complete more of the pathway and also honors those who have helped advocate for the project.
Brooklyn Greenway Initiative is working towards completion of the pedestrian and cycling path which will eventually stretch 14 miles from Greenpoint to Bay Ridge — six miles of the Greenway have been completed, leaving eight to go.
The nonprofit’s 5th Annual “Greenway + Industry” networking event will bring together businesses and business leaders along the 14-mile stretch of the proposed Brooklyn Greenway to honor Rony Vardi, founder of longtime Williamsburg favorite Catbird, for her support of the Adopt-a-Greenway program. The program allows the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative to keep the pathways clean and lush for the thousands of daily users.
Started in 2004, Brooklyn Greenway Initiative is the nonprofit organization committed to the establishment, development and long term stewardship of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. Broken into 23 distinct segments, the Greenway will be completed as funds are raised, the NYC DOT announced in 2012.
There will be a cocktail reception, awards program, dinner and live music by Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra at the event. It will take place at Alma, the Mexican restaurant in the Columbia Waterfront District, from 6:30 to 10 p.m.
