OANA Meeting May 12, District 22 City Council Candidates Forum on May 24

ASTORIA – The Old Astoria Neighborhood Association (OANA) holds its next meeting on Wednesday, May 12, 6:30 PM EDT. The meeting agenda includes the presentation Undesign the Redline: Why West of 21st Street Was Neglected, by Braden Crook, a founding partner at Designing the We, a social impact design studio operating in community-driven social and economic development, with panelists Stacey Andreadakis and Bishop Mitchell Taylor.

Andreadakis holds a Master of Science in Real Estate Development (MSRED) from Columbia University; a Master of Science in Applied Mathematics (MSc) from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University; and a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Applied Mathematics from George Washington University.
