We've received two interesting pieces of snail mail during the past week that we thought we'd share with our readers.
Residents on the same block as the very "contextual" NoLandGrab Park Slope branch received this bi-fold four-color mailer from BrooklynSpeaks on December 23. Others in the area received the mailer 1-3 days prior.
The mail-in card urges Gov. Elect Spitzer and Assembly Speaker Silver to, "Please do not approve the project unless its flaws relating to scale and design, transportation policy, affordable housing and public process have been addressed." The Speaker voted to approve Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards project on December 20.
This letter from Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, dated December 21, arrived at our "production department" on December 26. Speaker Silver is thanking the concerned Brooklynite for their input, stating, "Your thoughts will be useful in upcoming discussion related to this matter." The Speaker voted to approve Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards project on December 20.
