…with 40,000 new units of housing expected in Williamsburg and Greenpoint, and 15,000 in Downtown Brooklyn…

I really hope they mean residents, not housing units. Yeah, either way the L train will suck, but there’s an order of magnitude or two of suckiness in there.

(For the record, I remember the waterfront rezoning claiming 10,000 new housing units; Domino is proposing another 2,200. That doesn’t begin to get you close to 40,000 units, and if you (conservatively?) estimate 2.5 people per housing unit, well, you do the math.)
