Council of Brooklyn Neighborhoods Holding Noon Press Conference at Ward Bakery

The Council of Brooklyn Neighborhoods is holding a noon press conference today at Ward Bakery, which suffered that parapet collapse yesterday, to call for a halt to demolitions for the Atlantic Yards development in Prospect Heights. The group wants an immediate suspension of activity until a "thorough investigation as to the cause of the collapse can be conducted," safeguards are put in place to prevent similar incidents and there is "appropriate oversight" to monitor demolition and construction. Members of the group include the Fort Greene Association, Society for Clinton Hill, Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn, Atlantic Avenue Betterment Association, Friends of Greater Gowanus (FROGG), Boerum Hill Association, Park Slope Neighbors, Prospect Height Action Coalition, Council Member Letitia James, Senator Velmanette Montgomery, Reverend Dennis Dillon of Brooklyn Christian Center and others.
