PM Update: Rally Calls for "Short and Happy" Carroll Gardens


The planned rally to call for action on a downzoning of Carroll Gardens took place on the steps of Borough Hall this morning. Our special Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill Correspondent was there and reported back with photos and a details of the rally. City Council Member Bill de Blasio promised to push the downzoning, which City Planning is committed to studying. Among the groups involved were CORD, FROGG, the Union-Sackett Block Association and the Carroll Gardens Neighborhood Association. Blogger and City Council candidate Gary Reilly seemed to have the morning's soundbites, saying that he didn't want Carroll Gardens to be "the next Williamsburg" and, "Keep Carroll Gardens/South Brooklyn SHORT and happy!" We will have more extensive coverage and more photos tomorrow. In the meantime, check out the superb coverage and photos at Brownstoner.

The posts on curbed and brownstoner in reaction to this rally are UN-F-ing believable. "NIMBY jihad"??? I mean, it's just people wanting quality of life, not big glass characterless sprawl. It's not Iraq. It's not Los Angeles. It's Brooklyn wanting to stay Brooklyn-like, not like Dallas.

"Nimby jihad?" (great name!) OR????? real estate people/ developers/agents/salepsople/industry people AS NAUSEUM looking to intimidate thru good ole fashioned name calling and bullying? Isn't it the equivalent of busing in masses of people to "fake protest" something (e.g. Coney island) meanwhile getting paid to do it?? Next thing you know all of Brooklyn residents will be called NIMBY's! Every dang last one of em.....
