Just one week after we declared it "RESOLUTION DAY" (see our post below), it is already "SUPER TUESDAY!!"

In Carroll Gardens "Super Tuesday" has a special meaning this year. It means:
1) The Presidential Primaries (of course)
2) The GIANTS parade (of course of course)
3) TEST BORING at 360 Smith Street and new calls for the old questions! (????????????)
Yes, test boring is occurring at the empty lot as we speak. NO, we have still have NO IDEA what is being proposed for this development site. Mr. Stein is reportedly attending next Monday night's CGNA meeting which will be in an all new location.. the St. Mary's Senior Housing. Details forthcoming........


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........
