Brooklyn Heights Business Library Moving to Prospect Heights; Building May Be Sold to Developer

Unbelievable: Brooklyn Public Library's Business & Career Library -- located in Brooklyn Heights (since long before there was even a Brooklyn Public Library) -- is moving to the BLP Central library at Grand Army Plaza, according to the Brooklyn Eagle.

On top of that, the Eagle reports that the two-story building (known for its Art Deco reliefs and busted air conditioner) may be sold to a developer.

The Brooklyn Heights branch library is located on a wedge of land at 280 Cadman Plaza West that is exempt from the Brooklyn Heights Historic District's height limitations.

A spokesperson from the library confirmed the news, which broke late Tuesday.

Terrible news.

So short sighted.

The business library started in Brooklyn Heights more than 100 years ago by business people who needed it. It's going to disappear if it moves to Prospect Heights IMHO.
