  • A stargazing event in support of community safety hosted by Jason Kendall

    As the days get warmer in the Spring, people will want to go out into our parks, and enjoy them at night. Of paramount importance is that people are safe in the parks no matter what they are doing, playing dominos, walking Fido, watching owls or jogging around. This stargazing event shall highlight and feature women's safety in the park. It is critical that all women in Inwood feel safe and to that end, we take over the park for stargazing and for chatting about women's concerns. We want every woman every girlfriend, sister, daughter, mother and wife, to feel like the Parks are theirs at night as well. The only way to do that is to use the park. Let's start the Spring and Summer in Inwood right. Let's get together in celebration and support of all women in Inwood!

    Since this is a stargazing event, we'll change the night if it's rainy or cloudy, so that we can see the stars and planets. We are tentatively setting the date, but we'll pull it up and push it back a day, if we need to, so that the stars are out.

    Our meeting place shall be the baseball diamonds right at the entrance to Inwood Hill Park at Seaman and Isham Streets, in Manhattan.

    I hope we will see you there!

    This sounds like fun.... I've always loved studying about the solar system and other things in the cosmos. Check out "space school" on YouTube! :-)
