The Early Word: 'Greenstreet' Work Begins on Lafayette

Construction comes with a price, however.

1. As promised,  on Lafayette Avenue at St. James Place. Already a pile of old cobbles has been dug up at the site, ready to be replaced by new stones, perennials, shrubs and flowers. However, despite plans to use existing trees on the block, one arbor at Lafayette near St. James Place had its branches stripped and seemed ready for removal. Patch has a call out to the Parks Department for more info—we'll keep you posted.

2. The Fort Greene Park Conservancy is proud to present the  series of eight free, fun concerts for kids and their caregivers this summer. Today: Astrograss. Fort Greene Park. 10 a.m. Free.

3. The Myrtle Avenue Revitalization Project's  offers local veggies, honey, maple syrup, fruit juices and more for its third summer/fall season. EBT, WIC and Health Bucks accepted. N. Portland and Myrtle avenues. 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

4. Matt Munisteri, a virtuosic and in-demand guitarist with a wide-ranging roster of notable artists across the jazz and American-roots spectrum, will play the . Central Library, 10 Grand Army Plaza. 6:30 p.m. Free.

What a disgusting waste of money to "repair" a sidewalk that wasn't broke! Who is getting paid off to bring in all these pedestrian plazas, sidewalk plazas, green streets etc. So spending millions for sidewalks while there is no money for NYCHA repairs, day care and senior centers after school programs is somehow ok? Green Hill's political leadership has failed we the people.

Some people like attractive neighborhoods with places to sit. No one is getting "paid off". Enough with the conspiracy theories, Joe.
