Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn

The Prospect Lefferts Gardens Heritage Council, the Parkside Avenue Block Association and Concerned Citizens for Community Based Planning have worked to give residents a voice about development that has led to an unprecedented number of demolitions. Despite the existence of three small historic districts, Prospect-Lefferts Gardens is rapidly changing in scale, character and identity due to low-rise buildings being replaced by high-rise, “luxury” development, which is enabled by high-density zoning ill-suited to the existing built environment. Residents are working to document and make the case for preserving unprotected portions of the neighborhood before they disappear forever.
