NOV. 13, 2017, 7:30PM AT THE LAFAYETTE AVENUE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
Side entrance: 85 South Oxford Street (between Lafayette/Fulton Street). Doors open at 7pm.
At our November 2016 open meeting, “Fort Greene & NYC Neighbors Look to the Future,” representatives from Downtown Brooklyn Partnership and New Yorkers for a Human-Scale City discussed some of the pros and cons of high-rise development in Downtown Brooklyn.
The purpose of the Nov. 13, 2017 meeting is to continue this discussion as it relates to this new proposal for 80 Flatbush Avenue – a 74-story building on a full block site bordering Flatbush, Schermerhorn, State and Third Aves. Concerns include the scale of the project as it abuts a low-rise brownstone neighborhood, the blocking of sight lines of the Williamsburgh Clock Tower, and adverse environmental impacts.
