Save The View Now
Kings County Supreme Court
Thursday August 6, 2015, 10:30 AM
Please join us this Thursday, August 6, 2015 at 10:30 AM, as our case against the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corp and Toll Brothers is back in court. The hearing will take place in the Kings County Supreme Court building located at 360 Adams Street. The Honorable Lawrence Knipel is the presiding judge. His court room is on the 7th floor.
We expect the proceedings to be open to the public and the press. Join us and show your support. We all want the Pierhouse development returned to the specification promised to the public and the community in 2005.
This week People for Preserving the View Foundation (PPVF), the legal entity created to fund the litigation, received positive notification from the IRS that it has been granted 501(c)(3) status as a charitable organization. As such, all contributions will be tax deductible to the full extent possible. If you have already contributed, thank you. We expect to begin mailing and/or emailing contribution confirmation letters over the next few weeks.
We greatly appreciate the out-pouring of support you have already provided; however to fully take advantage of the new evidence supporting our legal case, we need to continue to receive additional contributions. If you can, please go to our web page and contribute online or by mailing a check.
Checks can be written to the order of People for Preserving the View Foundation (PPVF), c/o Steven Guterman at 75 Columbia Heights.
STVN will continue to pursue all legal measures to assure that the MGPP is followed and the vision of the park maintained. In the meantime, we demand that the BBP leadership explain why they are allowing construction of buildings that clearly violate the MGPP and their binding leases and we demand that the illegal construction above 100 feet be taken down. The time has come for obfuscation to stop and true transparency to begin.
I look forward to seeing you on Thursday.
