A few things of note to kick off the week in Bed Stuy. First off, there’s a Community Board Three general and public meeting happening tonight. It will start at 7pm at 585 DeKalb Avenue, off Nostrand. The agenda says there will be plans presented on the final renovation for the Jesse Owens and Stockton Playgrounds, as well as a public hearing on the Department of Transportation’s plan to “connect the existing bicycle routes on Tompkins Ave. and Throop Ave. to Brooklyn Ave. and Kingston Ave., via Fulton Street using shared lane markings.”
There will also be a request for a liquor license at 108 Patchen Avenue, off Monroe Street, and a few requests for sidewalk cafes.
Also, (hat tip to Brick Underground) there’s some affordable housing now available in the neighborhood. The city is renting out seven rehabbed units at 184 Monroe Street, between Nostrand and Bedford. Rents for one- and two-bedrooms units range from $554 to $849/month for those who meet specific income restrictions. For more details on eligibility and how to apply, go here.
