Gowanus residents float ideas for empty MTA lot
Community leaders are floating ideas to revamp a lot in Gowanus that has sat vacant for years near 10th Street and Third Avenue.
The early proposals from the Gowanus Alliance, a community group, include a dog park, a playground and open green space.
The lot spans a half of a block.
The MTA-owned lot had been slated to become a playground years ago, but officials shut down construction due to safety concerns.
The Gowanus Alliance held a meeting last night for community members to pitch other ideas.
Some local business leaders are already on board with an architectural firm putting together preliminary drawings.
Whatever the community supports, the MTA has final say on what happens to the lot.
