 A public hearing on the proposed 31- and 15-story residential towers at Pier 6 in Brooklyn Bridge Park will be held this Thursday, July 30 from 6 to 9 p.m. at St. Francis College, Founders Hall, 180 Remsen Street.

Turnout is expected to be big for this important hearing.

Opponents say the project planned for the park has not been proven necessary to support the park financially, and is actually a giveaway to a politically-connected developer. Mayor Bill de Blasio is pushing the development as a way to get more affordable housing built.

Brooklyn Bridge Park says it needs the money the project brings in to support the park. BBP is expected to pull an independent financial study (paid for by BBP) out of its hat, minutes before the hearing, proving that the project is necessary.
