Join us and John Dereszewski, who served as Bushwick Community Board 4’s first District Manager during the 1970’s, for this interesting discussion!!!

Live Music by Jate Kate Mohanty

John will discuss his perspective of Bushwick 2020 based on his vast knowledge. Then he will open the discussion up to everyone!!

Feel free to bring some food, drinks, or just yourself!!

Since John’s involvement on the Community Board he has been a part of numerous other community projects. As part of the 2007 Up From Flames exhibition at the Broooklyn Historic Society, John prepared an essay that summarized the events that lead to the crisis Bushwick experienced in 1977 as well as the steps that have been taken to bring the community back in the intervening years. He recently updated these notes to bring events to the present and speculate on how Bushwick will fare in the next few years. John has also lead number of historic walking tours of both Bushwick and the neighboring Williamsburg and Greenpoint communities.
