From the BHB Inbox comes news that Brooklyn Law students will now have access to the “judge’s” parking lot at Columbus Park. Access to students had been cut off several years ago due to “an angry confrontation” between a student and a parking lot guard. The following email from a BHB reader and the original announcement from Dean Joan Wexler are here for your comment:
As you’ll read in the email below, the judges are allowing Brooklyn Law School students to park in the Columbus Park lot after hours. As a Brooklyn Law student, I’m aghast that my school’s administration
would promote students traveling to school by car when every major subway line is within a couple of blocks. Furthermore, it’s like the administration is encouraging students to not only be irresponsible to
their neighbors and environment, but to their wallets. Law students should be reminded NOT to live beyond their means — students paying Brooklyn Law’s prices shouldn’t be buying gas.
More bikes, fewer cars at Brooklyn Law!

Subject: [BLS] Parking Lot
Dear Members of the BLS Community:
I am pleased to announce that members of the Brooklyn Law School community may make limited use of the parking lot at the NY Supreme Court’s Joralemon Street lot. The lot is in the park directly across from our main building. Our use of the lot was suspended several years ago after one of our students had an angry confrontation with one of the parking lot guards. Acting Administrative Judge Abraham Gerges has graciously agreed to reinstate provisionally our parking privileges.
We may use the lot after 6:00 p.m. on weekdays and during the day and evening on Saturdays and Sundays. If you have a 6:00 p.m. class, you may enter the parking lot at 5:50 p.m.
You must show your Brooklyn Law School ID in order to park at the lot.
Dean Joan Wexler
