During last night’s concert at Pier 3, BHA Executive Director Judy Stanton sent the following dispatch to members. While its main purpose was to inform members on how to specifically identify the location of Pier 3 to 311 operators, it also included a mention (which the Brooklyn Paper reported on earlier this week, but heck they called it a “rap party“… talk about subliminal messaging eh?) about the $200K site fee paid to the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation. One thing we’ve learned – to the BHA, Diesel is no Coen Brothers.
The email and a our BHB poll on the noise after the jump:
Dear Members: Sorry to be sending you another email on this topic but 311 may give you trouble if you are calling about the noise. When asked for the “nearest intersection” , tell the operator that it is Pier 3 in Brooklyn, on Furman Street with Montague Street being the nearest intersection. (Pier 3 is actually below Clark and Pierrepont Streets but this won’t register with 311.)
The Brooklyn Bridge Park Corp approved the event because it will collect a $200,000 site fee for use of the pier, to put towards maintenance and operation of the future park.
Please be sure to email the BHA office, indicating the hour at which you are disturbed by the noise. I’ll forward the complaints to the Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corp. Judy
