HARLEM/BED-STUY—New zoning plans are in play in both Harlem and Bed-Stuy. Public review has started for a plan to rezone approximately 90 blocks of West Harlem in order to preserve the scale and uniqueness of its early 20th century buildings. An area around 145th Street and Broadway would be rezoned to encourage residential and industrial development. In Brooklyn, a 140-block rezoning in Bedford-Stuyvesant North was introduced to preserve the built character of the neighborhood and direct new residential growth to major commercial corridors. The proposed rezoning would also create new opportunities for permanently affordable housing and strengthen established commercial corridors, such as Broadway, Bedford and Myrtle Avenues.
