Three Brooklyn Heights Association Members Resign in Tobacco Warehouse Flap

Three "prominent residents" who were former officers of the Brooklyn Heights Association (BHA) have resigned from the BHA, the Brooklyn Eagle reports.

Hank Gutman, David Offensend and Joanne Witty resigned in protest over lawsuits, supported by the BHA, to prevent the Tobacco Warehouse from being converted into a cultural and entertainment center by St. Ann’s Warehouse.

The Eagle says that all three were deeply involved in planning Brooklyn Bridge Park -- and all three are now on the board of directors of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation.
