Many in the Association felt very disappointed at being left out of the conversation, particularly after having just mended fences with the New York Streets area and National Development two months ago following a few years of separation.

    Old Dover Hears from National Development on Beer Garden
    Members of the Old Dover Neighborhood Association heard from National Development's Ted Tye on Tuesday night regarding the brewery concept that surprised many in the neighborhood when it was unveiled in the press last week.
