Ugly Betty star and Brooklyn Heights resident Ana Ortiz has come out against Dock Street DUMBO according to a press release from the DUMBO Neighborhood Association:
“I am a native New Yorker, born and raised in this magical city of ours,” states Ortiz. “Little by little, we watch as what is wonderful and unique about the city is paved over and homogenized. We all need to stop that from happening here, with Dock Street, and preserve something so beautiful to create a great and important legacy of your own.”
The DNA press release claims that Ortiz lives in DUMBO. Recent reports confirm that. Last year, she identified herself as a Brooklyn Heights resident in interviews published by the NY Daily News and People Magazine.
