Sign Up for the Central Brooklyn CSA!


The Central Brooklyn CSA connects the Crown Heights and Bed-Stuy Communities with the beautiful Windflower Farm in Upstate New York. Our CSA differs from others, in that we operate a tiered pricing structure. The tiered system allows for our higher income members to pay at a slightly higher rate, which then subsidizes shares for our lower income members. We also accept EBT payments for members currently utilizing the SNAP Program.  This CSA enables community members of all income levels to receive delicious, organic, and locally sourced produce at incredibly affordable rates from June-October each year.

Feel free to share the brochure and the flyer!

Thursdays in May: Classical Thursdays is back


“Music is the art of emotions and emotions are what makes us humans. We want to keep and share our humanity and we want to keep and share our music for a more aware world.”  Eugene Blount, Abp

The Brooklyn Center for the Arts is delighted to present the return of the classical concert series, Classical Thursdays.

The series is both designed to host a high level of artistic expression and to be an educational experience, raising awareness on the value of classical music in our modern life.  Each concert features young recognized international artists and it is introduced by a pre- concert lecture held by the musicians.

Classical Thursdays take place in the fast-growing community of Bed-Stuy in Brooklyn, in the beautiful setting of the Elim International Square and aims to add a valuable option to the rich cultural panorama of the Big Apple.

Starting Thursday May 4th there will be four (4) weekly appointments with classical musicians at the Brooklyn Center for the Arts, 28 Madison Street in Brooklyn.  Concerts start at 7.30 p.m. Doors open at 7.00 p.m.

We will present four (4) concerts in May:  May 4th, 11th, 18th, and 25th.  The full programing for Classical Thursdays will resume in Fall 2017.


Ticket Price:    $5.00

Past-Present-Future Count Down to SOTD 2017

As my team and I reflect on the past 3.5 years that we have served District 35, we are overjoyed by the many victories that we have won to strengthen and revitalize our beloved community. Over the next three weeks, we will be counting down to my Third Annual State of the District, which will feature an overview of our successes during my first term as Council Member for Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Prospect Heights, parts of Crown Heights and Bedford-Stuyvesant. We are not done yet, this is only just a preview of the amazing work that we have accomplished collaboratively as one community and the vision for our future. I invite you to join me on Thursday, May 18th at 6PM along with your family, friends, and neighbors at the Ingersoll Community Center located at 177 Myrtle Avenue.
