17 Years

Via North Brooklyn Neighbors, the cover of the New York Times, 17 years ago today. Marking the finalization of the deal to rezone the Williamsburg/Greenpoint waterfront. The rezoning itself was enacted 8 days later. As I noted in an earlier linked post, 17 years on only a third of the promised Bushwick Inlet Park has been completed. Less than half the total open space promised has been created. And I’d guess a bit over half of the promised affordable housing.
