Block Party To Come: 211 Ainslie Street Is Saved Celebration

211 Block Party horiz 002

211 Ainslie Street will celebrate its freedom from opportunistic landlords who allegedly purchased the building with the hope to turn the community space into market rate to luxury apartments. After nearly five years of rallying in the streets and on City Hall steps, as well as battling in court, June 22nd brought the news that St. Nicks Alliance and Conselyea Street Block Association closed on the acquisition of the building.  To celebrate this victory the street in front of 211 Ainslie Street will be filled with food and bouncy house fun on August 17th from 3 p.m.–6 p. m. All are welcome to cheer this accomplishment of what seemed an impossible task achieved through persistence and with the help from neighbors and local electeds
