There’s a new plan for the Brownsville neighborhood in Brooklyn — city officials plan to create 2,500 new affordable homes, business opportunities and new cultural, recreational, and educational facilities.
That includes a comprehensive plan for the creation of affordable housing on public and privately-owned sites, representing over $1 billion of investment.
“The Brownsville Plan represents a holistic, coordinated approach to neighborhood planning that puts the people who know their neighborhood best front and center,” said Housing Preservation and Development Commissioner Maria Torres-Springer.
