Honoring Bob, Jim and Doris



The Mitchell-Lama Residents Coalition and Council member Gale A. Brewer have requested that three streets in Community Board 7 be renamed in honor of Bob Woolis, Jim Garst, and Doris Rosenbloom longtime residents of CB 7 and activists for the preservation of Mitchell-Lama housing in rentals and cooperatives and social justice.

On February 12, 2008 (Tuesday) at 7 PM, Community Board 7’s Transportation Committee will meet to discuss the merits of our request. We are asking that as many admirers of Bob, Jim and Doris’ work come and speak in favor of

· renaming the northeast side of West 95th Street between Columbus Avenue and Central Park West Robert Woolis Way;

· the southwest side of West 94th Street between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues James Garst Way;

· And the southeast side of West 94th Street between Columbus and Central Park West Doris Rosenblum Way.

PLEASE call CB 7 at 212 362-4008 for meeting location.
