We write to express our very serious concerns regarding the exclusion of North Brooklyn in any of the immediate hurricane emergency planning initiatives announced by the Mayor’s Office and the NYC Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) on September 1st. While we were pleased to see the thoughtful and impactful resiliency strategies and investments that are planned or in progress across our city, we cannot ignore the blatant exclusion of North Brooklyn neighborhoods, primarily Greenpoint, Williamsburg, and Bushwick.


BROOKLYN, NEW YORK (September 16, 2022)  — Yesterday evening, New York City Council Member Jennifer Gutiérrez and non-profit Communities Resist were joined by 30 volunteers from St. Nicks Alliance, UNO, Los Sures and representatives from the offices of Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez, State Senator Julia Salazar, Assemblymember Maritza Davila and Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso for a Day of Action at the Bushwick/Hylan NYCHA Developments in an effort to organize tenants who are facing unlivable and undignified conditions.
