WASHINTON HEIGHTS — The much-anticipated George Washington Terminal Town Hall meeting that had been scheduled for Thursday night is canceled due to the snowstorm, officials announced.
Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, who organized the Town Hall with Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, State Sen. Marisol Alcantara, State Assemblywoman Carmen De La Rosa and Community Board 12, alerted residents via Facebook and Twitter Wednesday afternoon that the meeting had been canceled due to the blizzard.
He said that details of a rescheduled meeting would be announced soon.

The meeting — which would have been the first public meeting on the project since 2014 — was slated to take place at the Holyrood Episcopal Church at 715 W. 179th St. and Fort Washington Avenue.
However, George Washington Bridge Redevelopment Venture LLC — a private development company overseeing the project — and the Port Authority had not confirmed as of Tuesday afternoon whether they would be attending the meeting.
