Town Hall Meeting TONIGHT to Discuss Stadium

South Bronx United is promoting a town hall meeting tonight for residents of the area to discuss building a soccer-specific stadium for NYCFC at 157th Street and River Avenue.

The meeting will be hosted by the 161st Street Business Improvement District, at 900 Grand Concourse (161st St). It begins at 7:30 pm. It is open for all community members to attend, listen and share their opinions.

I presume the club will have someone in attendance, although I don't know who that will be or if they will speak. I would hope that they're available to answer questions, so much as the preliminary nature of the plans will allow. They've been playing their cards pretty close to the vest, so I would doubt that anything new is coming out tonight, but I'll keep my ear to the ground and see what I can glean from any responses.

Then there's always the danger that it degenerates into a shouting match or gives local cranks an opportunity to nurse old grudges. We've certainly seen this enough in political town halls.

If you are able to attend, let me know how it goes.
