BROOKLYN - Brooklyn leaders have set their sights on programs aimed at improving the Brownsville neighborhood.

District Attorney Charles Hynes led a walking tour Wednesday of several crime-fighting initiatives in the community. Visitors were able to stop by several sites, including the Back on Track offices, which help steer young people out of trouble.

Hynes says he wants to use strategies that have worked in other areas in order to bring about economic recovery for residents in Brownsville.

The city's commissioner of Small Business Services also took part in the tour to look at opportunities for economic development.
