LONG ISLAND CITY — Residents will be able to get some face time with Bill de Blasio next week — without leaving the neighborhood.

The mayor will hold a town hall meeting at Queens Vocational and Technical High School at 37-02 47th Ave. starting at 7 p.m. Thursday, his office announced Wednesday.

The event is one in a series of similar meetings de Blasio has held across the city, where the mayor discusses local issues and takes questions from residents.

He'll be visiting Western Queens at a time when several of his big proposals are being criticized locally. Dozens of residents held a rally in nearby Sunnyside last week in opposition to his BQX Streetcar plan, his aim to develop Sunnyside Yards and to rezone part of Long Island City. 

Space at the town hall is limited, and those who want to attend are asked to RSVP by April 25 by emailing TownHallRSVP@cityhall.nyc.gov or calling (212) 788-4282.

Doors for the event will open at 6 p.m.
