BROOKLYN - The Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation has been working to revamp Brooklyn Bridge Park, but a federal judge has now issued a temporary injunction to stop its plans.

A judge has ruled that the city and the National Parks Service violated federal law by trying to alter two Civil War-era structures, which are supposed to be historic landmarks. The plan had been to move the St. Anne's Warehouse, which is a private theater group located in Empire Stores, into the tobacco warehouse in DUMBO.

In response, city officials say they remain fully committed to incorporating the two warehouses and moving forward with their plans.
