Protesters denounce Bruckner Rezoning Plan before full City Council vote
Throgs Neck residents gathered Saturday outside of Councilwoman Marjorie Velazquez’s Bronx office to protest the Bruckner Rezoning Plan, which was passed this week.
The plan will allow an eight-story building to be built on top of a local supermarket. The building will provide 349 affordable housing units.
Protest attendees have concerns that the building will raise the density of the neighborhood.
Councilwoman Velazquez released a statement saying the project would bring housing and job benefits to the community.
The New York City Council will vote on the plan on Oct. 12.
