LOWER EAST SIDE — Residents of Lower Manhattan will get a chance to ask Mayor Bill de Blasio their questions at a town hall meeting in the Lower East Side next week.
The town hall will take place at 273 Bowery, a space occupied by the Chinatown YMCA and University Settlement's Houston Street Center, at 6:30 p.m., according to officials. It is co-hosted by Councilwoman Margaret Chin, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez.
The event will allow residents of District 1 — spanning the Lower East Side, Chinatown, Soho, TriBeCa and the Financial District — to air their questions and concerns about local issues, a City Hall spokeswoman said.
All topics are welcome, the spokeswoman added, and commissioners and representatives from city agencies will be on hand to answer questions as well.
The forum is co-sponsored by Community Boards 1 and 3, the Chinese-American Planning Council, Chinatown Partnership, the Educational Alliance, Hamilton-Madison House, Independence Plaza North Senior Center and Manhattan Youth.
Space is limited, and those interested are encouraged to RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (212) 748-0281. The deadline to RSVP is Monday, June 19.
Doors to the event space will open at 5:30 p.m. and will close at 7 p.m.
