Looks like Art Dog has been busy at the 360 Smith Street wall again....

By the way: What's new at 360 Smith Street?


Hint: Try asking Councilman DeBlasio for a "progress" report re:

1 "wide street" legislation???

2 subway plaza ruling???

3 our rezoning request???

4 whatever happened to the resolution on moratorium???

One thing we do know: at least there's a LANDMARKING meeting tomorrow!! Hurrah!!
Where and when:
November 19
6:30 - 8:30 PM PS 58 Auditorium
Carroll Gardens Neighborhood Association (CGNA) is sponsoring a panel
Your questions will be heard and hopefully answered! :)
See you there.


With the "Protect Our Homes" petition, CORD was formed in May, 2007. This petition arose as an overwhelmingly negative response to the coming of the over-sized 360 Smith Street Development at the corner of Smith Street and Second Place (Aka Oliver House; aka 131 Second Place). This petition, which had well over three thousand signatures, led to a new zoning text amendment in summer of 2008.

To: Our Elected Officials, Community Leaders, The MTA:
(MAY, 2007)

We the undersigned Carroll Gardens homeowners and residents, are appalled by the "as of right" ruling which allows owners and developers to erect buildings in our neighborhood with no regard to the impact they will present to our quality of life and the value of our homes........
