Borough President Wants Housing at Brooklyn Army Terminal

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.
