Brooklyn Heights Association Executive Director Judy Stanton, who will be retiring later this year, sat down for a Q&A with amNY. When asked what she thinks the future of Brooklyn Heights holds she replied:
amNY: The neighborhood will become denser. Because the zoning around us is quite generous, new buildings will replace some of the older ones on Montague Street and Cadman Plaza, which will mean that our streets will be more crowded and P.S. 8, our public school, which is already overcrowded, will face an even bigger challenge. In time, the neighborhood may feel less small, but happily the scale of the buildings in much of Brooklyn Heights will stay protected by the 50-foot height regulation and restrictions placed on changes to facades by the Landmark Law.
