From the NY Post:
A Brooklyn federal judge has ruled that the National Park Service illegally removed two historic 19th century buildings from US parkland protection to boost the city's plans for private developers to take over the sites as part of the Brooklyn Bridge Park project.
The decision, issued Friday, is a big blow to the city's plan to turn over the roofless Tobacco Warehouse to a DUMBO arts group, St. Ann's Warehouse, for a $15 million project to bring community events and live theater to the park.
The preliminary injunction also protects the Civil War-era Empire Stores site within the park from the city's development plans.
Part of the new city park occupies the site of a former federally run park.
The decision was in response to a lawsuit filed by groups, including the Brooklyn Heights Association, claiming the park service bowed to pressure from the Bloomberg administration by illegally demapping both buildings from federally protected parkland.

Bloomberg bitchslapped by Fed judge
Posted by Queens Crapper at 12:21 AM
Trendy Hipster neighborhoods are priority NUMBER ONE (outside of Manhattan) for Bloomberg.
Bloomberg and Quinn denied us a referendum, flushed democracy down the toilet, pushed a reckless development - a tsunami of community crushing development moving at the speed of Greed. NYU and Mike with Amanda the Peoples Burden destroyed historic building and perhaps are responsible for the most displacement since the American Indians.
Oops Mike Bloomberg Amanda the People's Burden are perhaps responsible for the mass displacement since American Indians and Burden had her butt kissed at the American Indian Museum and Quinn and Stephen Goldsmith have been introduced as Jane Jacobs! Visit 120 east 12 th st See facade from
1847 St Anns and NYU's tallest mega dorm illegal air sake by USPS. Columbia abused eminent domain to displace entire neighborhood Manhattanville. Exhausted angry 9-11 bad dream so is this
Give-a-ways to friends, family and anyone else he want to benefit with our public property.
The use of the word "bitchslapped" guarantees you will not be taken seriously.
I wasn't looking to be taken seriously. But obviously, the judge was.
If the tenor of this blog bothers you so, why do you keep coming back?
What was the "former federally run park"? The NPS never gives up park land.
so instead of renovating the building into a theater the lawsuit won the right to keep the facade of an empty, roofless building.
this mayor is an ass---e i cant stand him
it about time he got bitchslapped love it !!!!!
you can't bring these buildings back. I'm sure they'll just make the buildings anyways. they should sue them for more money than they could ever make on their project.
