The reports are in, and it seems like Fort Greene residents were able to have a productive workshop with NYC DOT and the Fulton Area Business Alliance (FAB) last night to discuss the new public plaza planned for Fowler Square. A reader informs us that aside from a few minutes of haranguing from a few individuals, attendees could sit down together and share ideas.
Previous public meetings for both the Fowler Square plaza and the recently opened plaza by Putnam Avenue in Clinton Hill have been ambushed by Schellie Hagan, an opponent of plazas and FAB who goes by the acronym FACT (Fulton Area Coming Together). As you can see from this Hagan flyer that our reader sent along, FACT is really all about bringing the Fulton area together by informing everyone of the facts.
After all, how could Fulton Street withstand another project to “split a neighborhood apart” like the “leisure class” plaza that opened at Putnam Avenue last year?
