The Central Park Sunshine Task Force of Community Board Five will be hosting a TOWN HALL to discuss real estate development on the 57th Street corridor and along the southern end of Central Park, which will create increased shadows in the Park. 

We encourage the Public to attend and voice their opinions, focusing on the issues of access to light and air, shadows, construction, height, and zoning regulations.  Your views will help the Task Force craft its recommendations to pertinent city agencies.  We need community input to help us fully understand all of the potential consequences of this development and its impact on your quality of life.  A LIMITED NUMBER OF SEATS ARE AVAILABLE FOR THIS EVENT, SO PLEASE RSVP EARLY.  To RSVP, click here.  Please join us.
