Downtown Brooklyn has a temporary "glut" of parking, which is mandated for new developments, because in part there is just so much transit available. (These are all transitional issues; also, this is only specific to like, the 18 or so square blocks of downtown Brooklyn.) So the City is working on rezoning to give developers back the parking spaces. "'They would turn it into more luxury housing,' [Councilwoman Letitia] James said, suggesting that it was naïve to think developers would volunteer to turn their extra parking into subsidized housing or a community space." YA THINK.
