Finally! Someone talked some sense into Councilman Bill De Blasio. He sure took his time about seeing the handwriting on the wall on this particular issue.
DeBlasio did not see anything wrong with allowing developer Two Trees to exceed the height limit by 10 feet in landmarked Cobble Hill for a new apartment building going in at the corner of Atlantic and Court next to the future Trader Joe's. This would have opened the flood gates for future abuses in protected areas, but our councilman did not see it that way.
I guess as long as Park Slope, his own landmarked neighborhood was not being touched, it was all fine by him.
He must have realized that he was the last public official to ignore the protests of the community. Now. finally, he changed his mind. About time, Bill, about time. And now that you got that out of the way, how about FINALLY helping Carroll Gardens down-zone?
