Mayor de Blasio's ambitious affordable housing plan has Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams thinking creatively. "Brooklyn no longer has any area that is undesirable," Adams said, possibly overstating his case a little, in a new report that proposes new residential construction at sites like Sunset Park's Brooklyn Army Terminal (which the city is already invested in turning into a manufacturing hub), Broadway Triangle (tied up in litigation), and Gowanus Green (terrifyingly polluted). Adams also wants to turn city-owned parking lots in southern Brooklyn (Brighton Beach, Bensonhurst and Midwood) into housing. "We have to stop walking by stones and start overturning stones," he said.
