Park Slope’s CB6 sends NY Methodist expansion plan back to drawing board
Project would 'alter the essential character of the neighborhood'
After hearing from representatives of New York Methodist Hospital and close to 50 speakers during a four-hour hearing in Park Slope on Thursday night, Community Board 6’s Landmarks/Land Use Committee rejected NY Methodist’s request for a zoning variance to construct a new, outsized ambulatory center.
“Landmarks requested that Methodist withdraw their application, and voted to deny the application on the chance that they don’t withdraw,” said CB 6’s Jerry Armer.
The committee’s vote is non-binding but will serve as a recommendation to the full board.
