Today's NY Times covers the continuing drama of Brooklyn Bridge Park or something we like to call – Condos or Don'ts. We pick up the story at the part where the BBPDF will fight the "good fight":
New York Times: New Brooklyn Vistas…: Judi Francis, president of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Defense Fund, who filed the lawsuit, said the plans to build housing at either end of the park sent a not so subtle message about who is expected to enjoy those lawns and water views. She faulted the plans for not providing enough access to the waterfront from other points like the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, which overlooks the park.
“Private uses have driven out public uses,” Ms. Francis said in an e-mail message. “That is the real shame of Brooklyn Bridge Park. We have been denied water access for generations because of our industrial past. We will continue this alienation with a wall of luxury housing lining our shores in the future.”
