Someone who opposes the enormous, 10-tower residential complex planned along the shore in Greenpoint passed out flyers on Election Day decrying the project, Curbed reported. Coming in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, one might think the issue would be safety, but the main beef outlined on the flyer seems to be the overwhelming size of the planned development, known as Greenpoint Landing. The complex will include 4,000 apartments in 30- to 40-story buildings on 22 acres. If built, it will be a dramatic change for Greenpoint, that’s for sure.
