Mayor Eric Adams, community leaders and advocates came together Friday for the grand opening of a brand-new 14-story property in Flatbush.
The 255 affordable housing units available in the Caton Flats are aimed toward those in low- and medium-income households.
The project hopes to continue bringing more vendors and customers to the Flatbush Central Caribbean Marketplace, another initiative spearheaded by multiple city agencies.
With plenty of new vendors, there are still legacy business owners there, including fruit stands that sell jackfruit, sugar cane, and coconut juice.
