INWOOD — An affordable housing workshop held by the city’s Economic Development Corp. in Inwood’s P.S. 314 Muscota New School Tuesday night drew so many people that some had to be turned away, officials said.
More than 200 attendees turned up for the NYC Housing Workshop that was meant to allow neighbors to discuss the city’s new Inwood Planning Initiative.
The crowd almost exceeded the school’s capacity, and some attendees had to be turned away at the door, according to officials overseeing the event.
“We had planned for lots of people,” said Christopher Carroll, a spokesman for the EDC. “But the fact that even more people than we had planned for showed up, is great.”
The city said the workshops were designed to engage residents and allow them to ask important questions about the planning process.
