Game On: Brooklyn Heights Association Announces Support of Pierhouse Foes Save the View Now

This just in — the Brooklyn Heights Association has released a statementsupporting Steve Guterman’s Save the View Now campaign to curb the height of Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pierhouse:

A decade ago, the BHA lobbied on behalf of our community to protect the iconic views of the Brooklyn Bridge by limiting the height of development in the park. In recent months, we have watched in stunned disbelief as construction of the Pierhouse has obscured those views.

Two weeks ago, Brooklyn Heights resident Steve Guterman started an on-line campaign: Save the View Now. As a new, independent, grass-roots organization, Save the View Now is ready to take a fresh stand. Save the View Now promises, in Steve’s words, a “laser-like focus” on the singular goal of saving the views of the Brooklyn Bridge, a goal we whole-heartedly support. The BHA encourages our members to sign his petition, available here.

    I hope the support by the BHA will include legal advice and backup to this effort to force the developers to toe the line of the agreement they made.

    firepower the are willing to make available. Otherwise’
