'Stop the Brooklyn House of Detention' Rally

A member of the Boerum Hill Association sent us an email about a rally against the expansion and reopening of the Brooklyn House of Detention on Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill. It reads in part:

"Sen. Eric Adams, Council Member Letitia James and Downtown Brooklyn’s largest NYCHA tenant groups have joined the lawsuit to stop the illegal expansion and re-opening of the Brooklyn House of Detention, as a growing coalition of elected officials, community groups and advocates for more responsible government prepares for a rally and their day in court next month."

The coalition will hold a rally at 9 a.m., Tuesday, January 6th outside the State Supreme Court building in Cadman Plaza Park. Visit the coalition’s web site at to sign up for updates.
