“My Brooklyn” Takes on Upscaling of Fulton Mall


    If you missed the premiere of the award-winning documentary “My Brooklyn: The Battle for the Soul of the City” in July, you can catch it Monday at Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church at 85 South Oxford Street in Fort Greene. The film explores the 2004 rezoning of Downtown Brooklyn and how policy “is driving large-scale gentrification and displacement in New York,” according to the filmmakers.

A portion of the proceeds from the suggested $7 donation will go to benefit PACC. For all the details, see here.
