Here are more pics of 360 smith street this time from second place (oliver house)....It is clear how large the mass is from the surrounding architecture...second place and smith street are dwarfed by this bulk. We have no pictures of the back of this hulk building (yet) ,
where the mass of this building will unfortunately meet the neighboring backyards. It is bound to be overwhelming. CORD


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........
