In Brooklyn’s Prospect Heights neighborhood, the conversion of a few former industrial buildings near the Vanderbilt rail yard to loft apartments that began in 1999 was followed by the announcement of the massive Atlantic Yards project in 2003, which in turn led to an increase in commercial and residential rents and accelerated displacement of residents and businesses.
In 2004 and 2016, the Prospect Heights Neighborhood Development Council surveyed hundreds of community residents to learn about what they value about living in Prospect Heights, the things they want to see improved, and their hopes for the future. Join us at PHNDC’s October general meeting for a discussion of how development pressure and demographic change have affected the way we look at our neighborhood, and what a coming increase in population may mean for the character of the Prospect Heights community.
