Fort Greene & Clinton Hill: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

In case you missed it, this comes from another local blog, posted by Norman Oder, dated Wednesday, April 29, 2009

In discussion about Fort Greene and Clinton Hall, history, transition, gentrification, and, yes, Atlantic Yards

It’s hard to do justice to the sometimes compelling, sometimes disjointed, wide-ranging panel discussion concerning Fort Greene and Clinton Hilll presented last night by the New York Times’s blog The Local at the Brooklyn Public Library’s Dweck Center at Grand Army Plaza.

But the session, titled “Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow,” did touch on the important and sometimes fraught intersections of neighborhood transition, development pressure, and race/class relations. (Of the panelists, two were black and two were white.)To read more of Norman Oder's coverage, go to Atlantic Yards Report -
