BAM's Boom

Is It Good for Fort Greene?

And locals have a few ideas too. For instance, Trayce Gardner, a community resident and founder of the nonprofit startup Brooklyn Young Filmmakers Center, has proposed the creation of a learning center that would produce feature films while providing employment training for low-income residents of Fort Greene.

The bottom line is whether the BAM LDC can see the potential existing in the neighborhood's social, racial, and economic mix. If so, will they make the effort necessary to find policy practices to develop this potential? If they do, Fort Greene could indeed be in for quite a radical experiment.

The BAM LDC's third and final Planning Workshop is scheduled for June 6, at 7 p.m., at Long Island University, 1 University Plaza, in the Health Sciences Humanities Building, near the intersection of Flatbush and DeKalb avenues.
