Columbus Park (Basketball Court Section of Ball Field)

Join us tomorrow in Chinatown to celebrate the holidays! 2,000 toys will be given out to kids by Santa at Columbus Park, in collaboration with his elves from Marine Corp. Toys For Tots. Chinatown Partnership thanks the Office of NYC Councilmember Margaret Chin, the NYC Parks Department, the 5 Diamonds Group for making this event possible.

The primary goal of Marine Toys for Tots is, through the gift of a new toy, help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope to America's less fortunate children.

NYC Foam Ban (Effective Jan 1, 2019)
Food service establishments, stores, mobile food commissaries and manufacturers may not possess, sell, or offer for use single-service Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam food service articles or loose fill packaging, such as “packing peanuts” in New York City beginning in 2019.

Affected Businesses
This ban affects any business that sells or uses EPS and is located or operates within any of the five boroughs of New York City.
Small businesses with less than $500,000 in gross income for the most recent tax year and non-profits may apply for hardship exemptions from the Department of Small Business Services (SBS) if they can prove that the purchase of alternative products not composed of EPS would create a financial hardship. SBS will begin accepting applications for hardship waivers in fall 2018. For more information, please visit  nyc.gov/foamwaiver.

The caller — or callers — was clearly targeting certain commercial strips, making complaints in batches, as on Nov. 26, when calls came in reporting 25 businesses along a two-block stretch of Eighth Avenue in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
