On April 8, 2014 Preserve Park Slope presented to the NYC Board of Standards and Appeals a multi-part response to New York Methodist’s plan to build a high rise building in the center of the Park Slope Historic District. Among our main points:
- NY Methodist has not met a legal obligation to support their claims
- It would be possible to build a suitable building that more closely complies with zoning law
- Department of Transportation involvement is necessary in order to assist NY Methodist in developing a traffic and safety plan
- Landmarks Preservation involvement is required in order to protect the unique character of the Park Slope Historic District
