It’s a sigh of relief for the Willowtown community.”

    This is excellent news.

    Poor Joralemon Street! The opening of Brooklyn Bridge Park has brought so much distress to residents of what used to be a quiet and out-of-the-way part of the Heights.

    Yeah, BBP has been a blessing but also a burden for residents here. I think overall the park has been more beneficial to residents here, but there are some days where it doesn’t seem that way.

    I’ve noticed that the amount of litter on the sidewalks of Joralemon has really increased with the warmer weather. Not on a par with muggings, but still a concerning quality of life issue.

    Police should install security cams and not rely on ring cameras. Why isn’t this common sense?

    Security cameras where? Everywhere there might be a crime committed? It would be an enormous expense and a questionable invasion of privacy.

    Joralemon street had been a VERY quiet and peaceful block before BBP.
