PLG Glass Tower Bashers

New, 2 comments

Most of the people at a Prospect-Lefferts Gardens meeting to talk about a big glass tower planned for the neighborhood were there to badmouth it. People were concerned that it will have impact on affordable housing, that it's out of context and that it will kill birds. "I felt like I was at an organizing rally to mount opposition to this project and I certainly didn’t feel comfortable speaking about what I mostly feel is a positive project for this community...the format and overall atmosphere predetermined an outcome of opposition to this project and development generally in this community."
