BUSHWICK COMMUNITY AGAINST RHEINGOLD REZONING
The Rhinegold rezoning was controversial before it was illegally passed by Community Board 4. We feel Bushwick deserved major out reach before this rezoning passed on any level. This kind of major rezoning and development has an over residentializing effect on neighborhoods. these units do not serve Bushwick residents. Bushwick has historically been a community where people lived AND worked. Read property group wants Bushwick to give up that history and that future possibility (look at Pfizer) by changing the zoning. Our community will get a sliver of park between Read's own buildings and less than a third of low income housing that is not low enough. This is a raw deal for Bushwick. Our schools, hospitals, streets. parking, trains, buses, trash cans will all overflow more than usual.
