Celebrating 45 Years!
Annual Members Meeting
By Marie-Louise Handal
At the meeting at Grey Advertising on Nov. 12, 2002, Bill Curtis presented
a history of the TBA, which was originally called the E. 49th St. Block Association.
Over the years, the TBA has had its share of challenges and successes. For example,
although we initially lost out to the area heliport, it was eventually discontinued.
Two recent victories were (1) preventing a homeless shelter from locating near
the International Pre-School, in a joint effort with 45th Street, led by Laurie
Marshall, and TBA, and (2) the expansion and refurbishing of Dag Hammarskjold
Barbara Connolly led the Nominating Committee for the Board of Directors and
the Executive Committee. Speaker Gifford Miller was on hand to give the TBA
a Proclamation from the City Council. Also present were newly elected New York
State Assemblyman Jonathan Bing and 17th Precinct Commanding Officer Michael
McEnroy who led a session on public safety.
Francine Mohink gave the Treasurer's report and Marie-Louise Handal spoke
for the Parks Committee. Further reports included VP Bruce Silberblatt, Zoning/Land
Use; Pat McDougald, Grants; and Bill Huxley, Turtle Bay Tree Fund. Other committees
accounted for included Special Events and Friends of Dag Hammarskjold Park.
TBA continues to be persistent and positive in all matters, particularly in
the outlook for Robert Moses Park.
