Reminder: B.P. Adams’ Public Hearing on Library Sale at Borough Hall Tuesday Evening

As we reported earlier, Borough President Eric Adams will host a public hearing about the proposed sale of the Brooklyn Heights Branch of Brooklyn Public Library to a developer who would build a high rise residential and commercial building on the site with a new library on the ground and one below grade level. The hearing will be held this coming Tuesday evening, August 18, beginning at 6:00, at the Borough President’s Courtroom in Borough Hall; use the entrance at 209 Joralemon Street.

This hearing is part of the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP), which must be completed before the project may proceed.

    EVERYBODY should show up, no excuses, and give you opinion on this total scam. The first link in a wall of highrises the RE industry wants to build around the former Brooklyn Heights. Get it straight kids, either you cause a firestorm of real, serious protest or kiss the great and fragile national treasure the Heights unquestionably is good bye…

    And there is no substitute for a firestorm. You can’t fight cancer with aspirin or sugar cookies. Someone has to represent the prospect of a serious hazard for their actions or rapacious types will never stop their nonsens. Someone has to bell the cat. Otherwise accept domination.

    As I understand it, email also will be considered as testimony for part of the record and recommendations on the ULURP:

    If you want to get your message of upset/outrage across to political/ government officials or the press for that matter ONLY a LIVE appearance
    Works. E mails, write a letter or faxes are FAR less effective. If you have a concern you really HAVE to show up and let your views be known….at like 2000 db!!!….
