Fourth Avenue Blues

Following the Wall Street Journal's dropping of the hammer on Brooklyn's new-look Fourth Avenue, the Park Slope Civic Council is holding a forum on the future of the street. No need, writes Carroll Gardens Diary, here's how to fix it: "eliminate a lane of traffic, expand pedestrian and bike space and change the draconian zoning regulations that dis-incentivize (made up word, yes) the creation of mixed-use development and instead result in a plethora of 'community facilities' (read: 'Commercial space limited to medical uses') which do nothing to the streetscape (second made up word)." Well then, glad that's settled. [Carroll Gardens Diary]
