February 2017 Updates

Sunday March 5th! Organizational Planning Meeting!

Mayday Community Space
176 St. Nicholas Ave.
Bushwick, Brooklyn
Please RSVP HERE! 

We are at a point in the NYC REIC's trajectory where we are actively considering investment projects, thinking about fundraising, and generally deciding what the NYC REIC is going to look like in the near future.

To make sure the NYC REIC develops intentionally and with member input, the Founding Board is hosting a facilitated organizational planning session. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP here by February 27, 2017.

As this will be a sequential, facilitated meeting, please commit to attending the full four-hour session. After you RSVP, a facilitator will be in touch with you by email with more information.

Join REIC U and CORB For a Joint Meeting February 26th!
REIC U meets 4-5pm
CORB joins the meeting 5-6pm

Join us for a joint planning of membership training and community outreach!
If you have already been a member of the REIC U or CORB (formerly PBIG), or if you have been interested in joining - please join us for this first meeting of 2017!
The meeting will take place in a private apartment in Williamsburg.

Get Involved!
Help the NYC REIC find projects to invest in, in your neighborhood!

We are the city itself deciding which places to invest in. Are there remarkable places in your neighborhood that are well-loved, well-cared for, helpful or needed, that we want to make sure we can keep? Do they, or could they possibly, pass through the first gate? (Read more about the first gate here).

If so, send the place’s name and address to, with contact information for the place’s people like a phone number if you have it - or call us at (718) 316-6092 x5. New York is definitely not for sale, but that won’t stop us from pooling our money and power to buy it back!
