As reported by The Eagle, the Brooklyn Heights Association and the Cobble Hill Association have jointly sent a letter to NYU Langone seeking information concerning matters of interest to the communities. NYU is presently operating an emergency room at the Long island College Hospital site and is to develop, pursuant to an agreement with Fortis Property Group, which now owns the LICH site, a larger medical facility at the corner of Atlantic Avenue and Hicks Street. The letter asks for information about the plans for the new medical facility, particularly with respect to planning for traffic and parking, and concerning plans for the demolition of existing structures, which has caused the temporary closure of two dedicated public spaces, including a playground used by both Brooklyn Heights and Cobble Hill residents.
