by GWAPP on

Did you miss the August 13th Community Board 1 meeting covering the new Greenpoint Landing development, but want to know what happened? It was certainly a heated and emotionally contentious evening. For more information about what was presented at the meeting and what the communuity thinks, take a look at our recap of the meeting or read the joint GWAPP/NAG testimony delivered that evening.

For a more visual representation of the meeting’s highlights, you’ll have to watch this skillfully edited short-film by local filmaker Heidi Gelover:

    After having a fire in my building on Franklin and Manhattan Avenues I moved out of Greenpoint. Although I am no longer a resident I am deeply interested in Gwapp and their advocacy for the good of the residents of the neighborhood. I attended community meetings in 2005 with Amanda Burden presiding and presenting the Bloomberg plans for the Greenpoint waterfront development. I felt at the time that we, the residents, were being sold down the river with promises for more parklands, a contiguous waterfront access and affordable housing incoporated in building the 40 story towers.

    Listening to this video, I see the community is still fighting for the truth from the city administration. I applaud the work of GWAPP and the residents for aggressively challenging the city’s development plans for Greenpoint. It’s clear nothing should be built unless and until issues raised in this video are met.

    Thanks for the kind words David. We’re glad that even though you’re an ex-Greenpointer, you’re still checking in. Keep coming back, we hope to do more in the future.
