Some Interesting May Events

May 1: Brooklyn Matters film screening at Cobble Hill Cinema

7:30 PM


Brooklyn Matters- A documentary by Producer/Director Isabel Hill.

No single event will have a more drastic and more long-lasting impact on Brooklyn than the proposed development of Atlantic Yards by Forest City Ratner. This uncommon proposal, however, is mostly misunderstood. Brooklyn Matters is an insightful documentary which reveals the fuller truth about the Atlantic Yards proposal and highlights how a few powerful men are circumventing community participation and skirting legal protections to try to get the deal done.
