March 9: After the Plan, a Walking Tour
GREENPOINT & WILLIAMSBURG: AFTER THE PLAN
In the aftermath of the Williamsburg-Greenpoint upzoning, the area immediately surrounding McCarren Park has undergone a drastic transformation. Once predominantly comprised of low-rise row houses and apartment buildings, the Park’s borders are now dominated by luxury condominiums built of materials and to a scale out of context with the rest of the neighborhood. Tour guide Ward Dennis (of WGPA) will highlight this severe new construction and how it’s affected surrounding areas.
The tour costs $25 - register here.
