    Your report is like a seed at a starting point, it will continue to grow into a trunk that is visible to the eye: Hello New York YIMBY.

  2. this is not near the smith and 9th St. subway station.
    you need to take a bus ride to get to the subway station, this is not a short walk at all.

  3. “the lot is near the Smith-9th Streets subway station”
    That’s quite an inaccurate statement to say the least.
    Per Google Maps, it’s at least a 24 minute walk from that station. (8 minute drive or 14 minutes by bus.) It may be the nearEST station but to say it’s “near” in this case would seem to be language used by a developer or real estate agent to make it seem convenient for commuters, which it isn’t.

    There isn’t enough parking in that area, and these plans don’t even provide for enough parking for the residents in each planned building.

  5. In Need of a housing miracle.

  6. I hope the developers are aware of and are considerate of the chimney shifts that migrate to the stack nearest the church every year on or about April 28th. The swarm entering and exiting the stack several times each day is a relaxing sight, and their diet of flying insects keeps us all a little safer.

    Definitely not near a subway, the “nearest” subway stop is a far walk away, and the B61 is not always the most reliable. They might leverage the Red Hook ferry stop, but as of now unless you work at Wall street or perhaps at NYU Brooklyn Hospital, you’re going to be looking at a morning ferry transfer as well. The ferry system is highly dependent on city funding, so this will even be a gamble. Imagine 210+ new residents also driving on the roads commuting at the same time as the UPS and Amazon trucks that are imminent on the neighborhood due to the incoming warehouses.

    I also wonder what’s going to happen to this building if another Hurricane Sandy hits. Conover Street flooded with 3-5 feet of water. Would be horrible if the residents were displaced due to another superstorm.

    All thoughts of concern as a longtime South Brooklyn resident. This building is not being welcomed by the community, the owners should know that.

  8. Please leave Red Hook alone. It’s a presious neighbored with a one of a kind community.
    It will never be the same if a 15 story apt complex is developed.
    Especiall near the water fron which would take wonder views away from the community.
    It is the last place that has been untouched and I feel should remain as such.
    It will loose the charm it has and will become a city like feel that we all here in the community enjoy and a releif from city living.
    Thank You.

  9. The developer I understand lives in Red Hook and if he is a real part of the community he would know how our community feels.
    So the question I ask Is he really a part of the community? I think not
