Flatbush Rezoning Proposal approved by City Council

Updated 2009-07-30: Added more links.

Today the City Council approved the Flatbush Rezoning Proposal. Brooklyn Community Board 14 posted this statement on their Web site: “We greatly appreciate the hard work of our elected officials, the neighborhood associations and their able leadership, and particularly the great staff at the Brooklyn office of the Department of City Planning for making this happen!” Knowing that the Council also sealed the fate of Coney Island, i.e.: Miami Beach, tempers my satisfaction with the outcome for Flatbush.

As some relief for today’s beastly weather, please enjoy this scene of one of the hundreds of homes now protected with today’s vote.
284 Stratford Road, Beverley Square West
