East Harlem City Councilwoman Melissa Mark-Viverito is hosting a meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Children's Aid Society, 130 E. 101st Street, between Lexington Avenue and Park Avenue, to discuss the redistricting of East Harlem.

Under a proposal from the Districting Commission, the current City Council District 8 would lose 30 blocks, including Randall's Island, and stretch further into the Bronx. Call (212) 788-6960 or e-mail newsfrommelissa@gmail.com for more information.
