Documentary Screening and Discussion: ‘Brooklyn Matters’

11:44 AM EST on December 30, 2006

Brooklyn is distinctly different and yet such an important part of New York City. The name itself brings to mind tree-lined streets, finely carved rowhouses and beautiful churches and diverse communities, rich in cultural life and ethnic heritage. On the upswing, vibrant and rebuilding itself, Brooklyn faces a new challenge-an uncommon development, designed by world famous architect Frank Gehry, that threatens to redirect Brooklyn's future and reshape its identity. Brooklyn Matters reveals the fuller truth about the Atlantic Yards proposal and highlights how a few powerful men are circumventing community participation and planning principles to try to push their own interests forward.
