BHA lawsuit is a bad idea

Bridge ‘Park’: My wife, Betsy, and I attended the Brooklyn Heights Association annual meeting on Feb. 28 at which Jane McGroarty, Brooklyn Heights Association president, included in her remarks an explanation of the rationale for the Brooklyn Heights Association lawsuit challenging the proposed use of the Tobacco Warehouse as a new home for the St. Ann’s Warehouse theater. In spite of this eloquent explanation, Betsy and I, most respectfully, remain strongly supportive of the St. Ann’s proposal and in strong disagreement with the Brooklyn Heights Association lawsuit.
