Western Queens councilwoman pleased her redrawn district will include NYCHA developments


Since taking office in January, Councilwoman Julie Won has stood shoulder-to-shoulder with residents of the three NYCHA complexes in her district, most recently on Oct. 5 when she joined her colleagues in government at the Woodside Houses to demand a permanent fix to the heating plant.

The following day, Won learned that the Woodside, Queensbridge and Ravenswood Houses would remain part of her District 26 after the New York City Districting Commission voted 13-1 to approve the twice-revised new City Council maps.
