As discussed here by some in the BHB community, the plan to move a Federal probation office to 147 Pierrepont across the street from St. Ann’s School is really no big deal. Why? They’ve been here for years. Brownstoner talks to “the man” who explains everything. Now will ya calm down?
Brownstoner: Federal Probation Officer: In response to the story we broke last week about the federal parole office set to share a building with St. Ann’s School, Tony Garoppolo, Chief Probation Officer of the Eastern District, pictured above, forwarded us a letter he recently sent to parents defending the decision. “Our anonymity has been blown,” he told us, adding that his agency has been in the neighborhood, within walking distance from the court system, since the 1930s.
