There’s a discussion going on at Brooklynian.com about the future of the armory at Atlantic and Bedford in Crown Heights that has been a homeless shelter in recent years. Evidently, Roger Green (who’s catching flack from Brooklyn Papers, among others, for killing the funding of the independent review of the Atlantic Yards project) mentioned at a community board meeting a couple of years ago that he was looking to convert either the Atlantic Armory or the one on Eighth Avenue in Park Slope from shelter to community recreational space. We don’t know what happened in Park Slope, but the one at Atlantic is still very much a homeless shelter–and at least several of the area residents are happy with it that way. Though we gotta admit, we wish we’d seen the Steel Pulse concert one commenter recalls seeing there years ago.
