House of Detention plans arrested
News is flying fast and furious regarding the Brooklyn House of Detention. The latest news is that a temporary restraining order has been issued against the City regarding its plans to reopen and expand the facility. The Cobble Hill Association signed on to this important lawsuit, Stop BHOD v. City of New York, earlier this month to stop the City from proceeding without a proper public process. That is the point of the legal action taken so far. We look forward to further consideration of the site's future.
