Rally for Bushwick Inlet Park
Mar 12, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The fact that the City has failed to deliver on the promises made in the 2005 Waterfront Rezoning is a slap in the face of earnest good faith community negotiation with the City; in this case, exhausted by an onslaught of environmental disasters proposed for the industrially zoned waterfront, in 2005 we were given a choice: rezone residential or live next to a power plant (or worse). In return for the radical impact of skyscraper development on the low-profile, primarily working class neighborhood that this rezoning would destroy (but nobody foresaw the enormity of what has actually happened), the community was given two small tokens of recompense; some affordable housing and just enough open space to hold our place in the basement of per-capita park space. Neither promise has been delivered.
