With the rapid development of Bushwick, wont be to long until it becomes BushSick

This item was brought to my attention by a person we’ll call “D”. A couple thoughts/observations:

  1. The grammar employed in this advertisement actually inflicted physical pain in yours truly.
  2. I have to wonder about the legality of what appears to be a basement apartment. Fire code, anyone?

Dear Homeowner:

As you may be aware, your property is locateed within an area designated to be rezoned by the Department of City Planning and the City Council in the next few months. This rezoning, which includes restrictions on building size, will have a significant impact on your property (Investment) and will have an impact on your rate of return.

New York laws provide affected property owners with only a limited time to protest these changes. We encourage you to participate in the public hearing on Wednesday JUNE 3, 2009 @ 10AM at Spector Hall located at 22 Reade Street New York, New York.

Go the to the following web sites for more information:

http://www.nyc.gov/html/dep/greenpointwill_con/zoning_proposed.pdf

http://www.nyc.gov/html/dep/luproc/calbeg.shtml

These zoning changes come 3-4 years far too late. Please, come and make a difference.

Protect you retirement investment.

Speaking as someone who thinks the previously mentioned proposed “downzone” doesn’t go far enough I’d love to know who the “we” behind this flier is! Somehow I can’t shake the feeling this missive was not the product of some local mom and pop landowner.
