BQE Park Update: Your Luxury Apartment Got in Our Park

Remember the plans for that trippy Brooklyn waterfront park, announced back in the cold days of winter 2004? It's something we're going to be hearing a lot more about this fall, as the complaints that started soon after its announcement—namely, that the park's proposed 1,200 luxury apartments are a de facto giveaway to the rich—are getting a hearing next week. Meantime, Brooklyn Heights residents are threatening a lawsuit as the plan goes in front of a planning board today, and a revised master plan is due to be announced later this month.
