Prospect Heights-area information and events you won't want to miss.

2. Speak out on Atlantic Yards Develoment. The Atlantic Yards SEIS Scoping Hearing is tonight at 182 Remsen St. The New York State Empire State Development Corporation will hold a public hearing to hear testimony on the draft scope of work for the Atlantic Yards Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS). ESDC was ordered to perform the SEIS as a result of a lawsuit brought by several community organizations.
