Dear Mayor Bloomberg: Regarding Brooklyn, Especially Carroll Gardens

Did you ever read those prayers to God? The ones from children who asked God to please cure their grandmothers, or dads, or sisters?

That's kind of like the letter we got today from CORD, about 340 Court Street, addressed to Mayor Bloomberg and other area representatives:

"We the undersigned Carroll Gardens homeowners and residents, are appalled by the 'as of right' ruling which allows owners and developers to erect buildings in our neighborhood with no regard to the impact they will present to our quality of life and the value of our homes" ... and so it goes.

So what is going on at 340 Court Street? A Gowanus Lounge correspondent shot a photo showing that "a big dig is underway in the back of the former medical building that is going to be demolished."

Gowanus Lounge also says that complaints have been filed with the Department of Buildings from people whose homes are shaking from bulldozers. DOB complaints here.
