At the Walkie Award Ceremony, our elected officials were generous of their time and praises for our work to improve pedestrian safety in the neighborhood ;
Council Member Corey Johnson, Borough President Gale Brewer and Manhattan Community Board 4 Chair, Delores Rubin joined us , while Senator Hoylman, Assembly Member Gottfried and Rosenthal sent emissaries since they were retained in Albany as the legislature – such as it is – was still in session. Comptroller Scott Stringer and Congressman Jerry Nadler were also represented.
Dan Tepfer played the piano. A remarkable musician” in the words of the Washington Post and one “who refuses to set himself limits”- a mantra we certainly embrace, as he showed in his “Goldberg Variations /Variations” an album which received broad praise from the New York Times. He has won several Awards at the Montreux Jazz Festival and others; his recent soundtrack for the independent feature “Movement and Location” was voted Best Original Score at the 2014 Brooklyn Film Festival. Dan uses a bicycle as transportation.
