Ridgewood Resevoir

Over here in Forest Hills, we tend to forget that there is more between us and Manhattan than the occasional restaurant and PS1. We are one part of Queens, just as Queens is one part of NYC, and NYC is one part of the New York, etc. In other words, each of us is one part of a larger whole, and more and more, it is up to individuals to make choices that better the whole. That is a theme of Splitting Hairs in Forest Hills, and it is very much the mission of David Quintana, who offers us this invitation—
On behalf of the Highland Park/Ridgewood Reservoir Alliance and in cooperation with Assemblyman Darryl Towns, we would like to invite you to a tour of Highland Park and Ridgewood Reservoir on May 15, 2008 at 11 am.
The New York City Parks and Recreation Department is in the process of administrating construction plans for Highland Park and Ridgewood Reservoir. The park and reservoir are located on the Brooklyn/Queens border. The location holds historical and ecological significance which we wish to see maintained.
Our Alliance is a grass roots based group comprised of community and environmental activists. Our mission to prevent the Parks Dept from destroying the historical integrity of the Reservoir, to preserve the natural landscape of the area, establish a interpretive nature center and to rehabilitate and improve the active sporting areas of Highland Park.
Therefore, your attendance is requested on May 15, 2008 at 11 am to participate in the tour. We will be meeting in the parking lot on Vermont Place between Cypress Avenue and Highland Blvd directly across from the Reservoir to begin the tour promptly at 11 am.
It is requested that you please RSVP to the undersigned by phone or email.
Thanking you in advance for your kind cooperation in this matter.
David M. Quintana – (Chair) Outreach Committee
Highland Park/Ridgewood Reservoir Alliance
