BROOKLYN - The city held a hearing to listen to a presentation on the expansion plan for New York Methodist Hospital. 

The Park Slope hospital wants to build a facility on 8th Avenue, which could include cancer and urgent care centers. 

Some residents welcome the expansion, but others say that because it would require removing Methodist-owned brownstones, it will ruin the historical character of the neighborhood. 

The proposal has already received approval from Community Board 6, but now it's up to the city to make a final decision.
