phndc.org is a portal for the exchange of news, events and information among Prospect Heights community members interested in the development of this unique and historic neighborhood.
In order to be considered, you must attend an Information Session on one of the following dates:
The sessions will take place at the Brooklyn Navy Yard Employment Center, Building 92, 63 Flushing Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11205. (Enter at the intersection of Flushing and Carlton Avenues.)
If you have children and earn $53,000 or less,, or have no children and earn $18,000 or less, you can receive free assistance filing your tax return at a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site operated by the City's Department of Consumer Affairs. For Prospect Heights residents, the closest VITA site is nearby at the Brooklyn Public Library, room 216.
VITA site preparers are IRS-trained and certified to help you file your taxes and claim credits like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the NYC Child Care Tax Credit (NYC CCTC).
Call (718) 230-2100 for more information.
Due to the efforts of Community Board 8 relaying numerous community complaints regarding excessive filming in Prospect Heights, the Mayor's Office of Film, Theater, and Broadcasting has agreed to impose a moratorium on filming in Prospect Heights for the next six months. The moratorium will be effective beginning February 1, 2015, but will not include projects that are already contracted.
On December 11, local elected officials and affordable housing advocates demonstrated in front of the cooperative apartment building at 230 Park Place in Prospect Heights. Assembly Member Walter Mosley, City Council Member Laurie Cumbo, and members of the Fifth Avenue Committee and the Pratt Area Community Council protested the harassment of tenant Carmen Pineiro by the co-op's board.
