Brooklyn Eagle: Preserve the Rest of Brooklyn

In an op-ed on the demolition of 100 Clark Street, the Brooklyn Eagle has this to say about the rest of Brooklyn:

However, in areas such as Bushwick, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Sunset Park and East New York, there are 19th century buildings in terrible condition that are only sporadically repaired, or, in some cases, vacant. These buildings may also be in danger of falling down. Yet, who will take up their cause? ...Perhaps it’s time for our academic institutions, city agencies, architects, non-profits and grant-making businesses to show as much interest in preserving other areas of the borough as they do in preserving Brooklyn Heights, Carroll Gardens, Boerum Hill, Fort Greene and Park Slope.

We couldn't agree more.
