PLG Residents Ask City Hall for a Temporary Halt to High-Rise Construction

A reader sent in these photographs of the rally in Manhattan Friday calling for a temporary moratorium on high-rise construction along the east side of Prospect Park in Prospect Lefferts Gardens while residents try to downzone the area. Our tipster said she counted at least 75 people in attendance, although the photos seem to show fewer.

Speakers at the event included City Councilman Mathieu Eugene and Community Board 9 member Diana Richardson. The protest was organized by the Prospect Park East Network and cosponsored by the Lefferts Manor Association, Flatbush Tenants Coalition, and Prospect Lefferts Gardens Neighborhood Association.
