HERE IS THE PRESS RELEASE:
Press release from The village of Sunset park RE: Saving our library from developers* * * *
Please find enclosed a press release from The Village of Sunset Park, a non-for profit community based organization. Our members which consist of Principals, Teachers,Attorneys, Law enforcement, and other community activist, have fought for and obtained new schools for our neighborhood which has been traditionally a neighborhood of immigrants and working class people. Our library supplements our over crowded schools. As a result, it is one of the most used libraries in the entire city of New York. Now developers want to seize our library for free.The developer says it will spend 10 million dollars to give us four empty walls of a building and that we would have to obtain another 20 million to complete the new library, of which the Brooklyn Public library says it does not have.
Yet the Home Reporter printed a story in its July 17-23 edition on page two that a developer is going to build a new 20 unit condominium on 97th st and third ave Brooklyn, complete for 10 million dollars. Which further leads us to believe that the proposed Sunset Park Library development project is a rip off of our public resources.
