It's Official: The Urban Meadow has its own site!!!

Up until now, the Urban Meadow has never had its own website - instead functioning through posts on this blog, facebook, and myspace. The time has now come for it to get a site of its own. Check it out to see more in depth posts about all things Meadow related, including events, pictures, programming, membership information, and much more!

While you can still expect to see posts here announcing events and such, you can always get more information from that site. For example, the recap and pictures of last weekend's Folk Festival on the new UM website are much more detailed. Here's just one example:


The full Folk Fest recap is here and a live video of one of the performers is here

Repeat presentation of Pratt Institute class plan for Columbia Waterfront

This Friday at Freebird! For those of you that didn't make it to the previous presentation at LICH, I strongly encourage you to attend this repeat presentation. The students presented some very interesting ideas for our community that sparked engaging discussion afterward!

Event Description:
Students from Pratt Institute's Graduate Planning and Preservation Spring 2010 Studio course investigated general land use, economic conditions, and quality of life issues for the Columbia Waterfront Neighborhood in Brooklyn. From intensive research, interviews with local community members and neighborhood stakeholders, the students developed a land use plan that addresses environmental, cultural, and economic improvements for the neighborhood in both the short and long term. To hear the final results and recommendations we invite you to attend a repeat performance of the final studio presentation at Freebird Books, 7pm, May 28th.

June "Dark Harbor" Film series at Freebird

Dark Harbor film series at Freebird Books in June; Book launch on June 6
Port of New York (June 3) * Slaughter on Tenth Avenue (June 10) * Edge of the City (June 17) * Murder Inc. (June 24)

In conjunction with the release of Dark Harbor: The War for the New York Waterfront, author Nathan Ward curates a series of classic films about the crime that once defined our working waterfront.

Each Thursday throughout the month of June, Freebird will screen four movies that depicted the more sordid side of New York stevedoring in the wake of newspaper exposes and crime commissions in the 1940s and ‘50s.

Labor racketeering on the docks was an open secret in the city in the first half of the 20th century. But it wasn’t until the intrepid reporting of Malcolm Johnson in the late 1940s that federal and state authorities took serious notice of the murders, extortion, and intimidation that was rampant in waterfront communities like Red Hook.

Dark Harbor details the incidents that led to Johnson’s investigations for the New York Sun and his Pulitzer prize-winning articles on the subject. The articles would unleash new scrutiny of mob control of the longshoremen’s unions and inspire countless novels, plays, and films about the subject.

Though the Elia Kazan-Budd Schulberg production of On the Waterfront--originally based upon Johnson's articles--is the most famous on-screen example, the Dark Harbor series focuses on lesser known classics shot around the city in the aftermath of the New York Sun expose. Nathan Ward will introduce each film and place them in the context of the present day working waterfront outside Freebird’s door—before containerization and the BQE altered the landscape permanently.

Thursday, June 3, 7:30 pm

Port of New York

This early docu-drama from 1948 uses the real events around the case of the S.S. Florentine: A body thrown from a ship in New York Harbor leads to a double-cross and ultimately a master heroin-smuggler played by with cruel charisma (and hair!) by Yul Brynner. There's an undercover Treasury agent and a jilted mol in this dragnet picture.


Sunday, June 6, 2 to 6 pm

Book launch for Dark Harbor
Refreshments and bonus film to follow


Thursday, June 10, 7:30 pm

Slaughter on Tenth Avenue

This 1957 movie comes from the memoir of Assistant D.A. Bill Keating, the man who sent racketeer "Cockeye" Dunn away for the murder of a West Village hiring boss, Andy Hintz. The movie does a pretty fair job reenacting the Hintz job and doesn't overplay Keating's own heroism until the movie's prosecutor joins a dockside brawl. Some excellent waterfront locations and a surprisingly malevolent young Walter Matthau as a racketeer.


Thursday, June 17, 7:30 pm

Edge of the City

Sidney Poitier and John Cassavetes play hipster-longshoremen working under a corrupt boss played by Jack Warner. The final duel with cargo hooks is inevitable but dramatic. Released in 1957.


Thursday, June 24, 7:30 pm

Murder Inc.

If you love Peter Falk, you'll want to see him at his creepy best, playing the all-time most influential mob turncoat, Abe "Kid Tist" Reles, the 1930s Brooklyn gangster who revealed the personalities, crimes, and very existence of the organization that came to be called 'Murder Inc.' You'll never look at Lieutenant Columbo quite the same. Released in 1960.

Support Dimattina Dog Park!

A message from Carroll Gardens DOG about the next steps for getting Dimattina Dog park rennovated:

Dear Dog Park Friends,

We are close to securing the necessary funding for renovating the dog park. Will you take a minute to send an email to Councilman Lander or Assemblywoman Joan Millman? Your message should be short indicating your appreciation for their support for the renovation of the dog run at DiMattina Park.

Lander's e-mail: MFreedman-schapp { at } council.nyc.gov or Fax 212.788.8967
Millman's e-mail: Millmaj { at } assembly.state.ny.us

We can't emphasize enough the critical nature of these support letters since the capital budget item vote and inclusion into the 2011 budget is being decided now.

Our dogs deserve a safe dog park! Please send an email this week!

Over the course of some very funny slapstick scenes and secret shenanigans, Rebecca prevails.

Reminder: Books Through Bars bbq and book drive Saturday 5/8

Just a reminder that there will be a great event at Freebird on Saturday, 5/8, from 2-6pm! Details according to a Freebird email:

Just a reminder that if you have leftover books and are looking to make space in your cramped apartment, we are leading a book drive on May 8 for the grassroots organization, Books Through Bars, a non-profit which donates books to prisoners across the country.

Since the occasion roughly coincides with the 100th anniversary of Mark Twain's passing, we will honor his memory with Six Point beer, grilled food, and, of course, T-shirts! All Freebird's proceeds from the sale of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer T-shirts (made by our friends at Novel-T) will go to Books Through Bars, which also needs money to cover the costs of postage for their donations.

Speaking of which, books donated to BTB are tax deductible. Books Through Bars is especially looking for books in the following categories -- and preferably in paperback, to cut down on postage costs:

  • African-American history, especially 20th century
  • Native American history
  • Latin American history
  • Radical politics
  • Social sciences and psychology
  • Dictionaries, thesauruses, and Spanish-English dictionaries
  • Learning world languages
  • How-to (drawing, chess, sign language...)
  • Mayan and Aztec history
  • Memoirs and fiction by people of color
  • Mythology
  • Poetry anthologies

That said, we don’t want to turn away any generous offers and what BTB can’t use will either make its way into Freebird’s general population or off to another charitable organization.

There will also be a team of volunteers doing some cleaning and planting along the greenway.

Volunteers should meet across from 145 Columbia Street at 9:45 am. There will be a post here in the case that the event gets canceled due to inclement weather.

Hope to see you there!
