Hope for Duffield Street Houses?

This just in from Curbed, “It looks like the city is going to build a museum in downtown Brooklyn to commemorate the Underground Railroad movement and the buildings it is going to tear down to build a build an underground garage and a park on Duffield Street. Yesterday, the city asked for RFPs for a “Brooklyn Abolitionism Commemoration” that could include a museum”.

There’s nothing in the document that requires retention of the houses but this is a definite step forward.

More to come…
