Streetsblog Birthday Party

This Friday we’ll be celebrating Streetsblog’s first full year of operation and the remarkable progress that New York City’s Livable Streets movement has made in pushing transportation policy and urban environmental issues to the very top of the civic agenda.

This web site would be a far less interesting and informative place without all of the people who take time to send in tips and contribute to the comments section and we are really proud of the relatively high level of discussion that we’ve got going here.

So, if you’ve been a part of the movement or a contributor to the blog, come on over to The Open Planning Project office this Friday after work and hoist a pint to a pretty remarkable year’s worth of advocacy. Shoot an e-mail to tips@streetsblog.org as an RSVP, if you would. Here are the details:

Streetsblog Birthday Party
Friday, June 15th, 2007

The Open Planning Project
349 W. 12th Street, 3rd Floor

Drinks, snacks and hanging out on the deck if the weather allows for it.

Oh, yeah: Here is Streetsblog’s first official post, "The $46 Million Parking Perk." It went online on Friday, June 16, 2006. Note that we still have some work to do on this issue.
