Changes Afoot

The Waterfront Preservation Alliance of Greenpoint and Williamsburg is no more (don't panic).

Effective more less immediately, we are changing our name to the Williamsburg Greenpoint Preservation Alliance. This new name reflects our mission as a neighborhood preservation advocacy organization, and confirms our commitment all of Williamsburg & Greenpoint area, not just the waterfront.

The first incarnation of this change will be the switch of our domain name from waterfrontalliance.org to wgpa.us, which will take effect in the next couple of days. We expect that both domains might be unavailable for a day or so, but we will be back as wgpa.us very shortly. Once we return, there may some residual weirdness, as pointers point to non-existent points. But all of that should be ironed out fairly quickly.

Waterfrontalliance.org will not go away, however. It will reappear very soon as the new web home of the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance (currently located at waterwire.net). This excellent group's mission is advocacy for the city's 500+ miles of waterfront, so the domain name is far more fitting for them than us.
