This Week in Chelsea: September 30-October 6, 2019

Wednesday, October 2: Manhattan Community Board 4 Full Board Meeting | It’s a love letter to anyone who’s ever come across construction in their neighborhood and said, “But nobody told me about that.” CB4 meetings provide early warnings for things to come, as the board reviews and debates everything from rezoning to liquor license renewal requests. It’s quality quality-of-life info at the ready, and no CB4 meeting has more to offer in that area than the monthly full board meeting, where committee letters go to the full board for a vote. Show up a bit before start time, and sign up for the Public Comment section, where you get the mic for 2 minutes, and can take that opportunity to make your voice heard. Wed., Oct. 2, 6:30pm at Hudson Guild Elliott Center (441 W. 26th St. btw. 9th & 10th Aves.,in the Dan Carpenter Room A/B). For info on all things CB4, click here.

Thursday, October 3: The PS11 Farm Market, Week 18 | PS11 Farm Market this week will be held on Thursday, October 3 from 8-9:30am. The 511 3rd graders will be running the market this week, selling great local, organic, seasonal produce. Look for them under the scaffolding, outside of PS11 (320 W. 21st St. btw. 8th & 9th Aves.). This market is presented in partnership with Stoneledge Farm. Here’s some of what’s in the bag this week: carrots, green curly kale, sage, shallots, butternut winter squash, red cabbage, and cauliflower.
