In the Echo’s Spring 2015 issue, we misquoted Winston Von Engel, the head of the Brooklyn office of the Department of City Planning, regarding 13-story buildings in Crown Heights. New zoning codes that the DCP, City Council and the local community board there approved now prevent – not allow – 13-story buildings on blocks dominated by four-story brownstones. But the new zoning does permit a modest increase in density (or height) for affordable housing along Franklin and Bedford Avenues and on Eastern Parkway. The Echo regrets misquoting him.
In the story about feral cats in the neighborhood, the actual capturing date for the ferals is Saturday, April 25th. The ASPCA will pick them up Tuesday morning, April 28th, and return them to the neighborhood later that day.
