GOOD NEIGHBORS RALLIED FOR A SUBWAY AT 7th AVE & 9th STREET!!
IMPORTANT: If you agree that the MTA should prioritize the 7th Ave F/G station on its list of stations to receive elevators, please sign this petition today. Pass the petition along to your neighbors, family, and friends, and share it on social media too! The more voices we have calling for an elevator, the stronger our case will be.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE A CHECK-IN BUDDY?
ADD YOUR NAME TO THE NEW WEB PAGE,
FIND THE NAME OF SOMEONE WHO IS ALSO INTERESTED!

Some GNPS members have said that they would like the reassurance of having a check-in phone call or text each day.  We believe that this works best when it is a reciprocal arrangement put in place by the people involved. This page has been created to help GNPS members find other members who are interested in participating in a Buddy Check-In Plan.
Check out the page for more information about checking in!
