Parks groups to host borough president forum focused on Brooklyn’s open spaces


With Brooklyn’s borough presidency up for grabs, and more than a dozen candidates vying to fill the soon-to-be empty seat at Borough Hall, it’s more important than ever for Brooklynites to know what the candidates stand for — and, with most forums and debates still limited to a virtual setting due to the pandemic, it’s easier than ever to tune in.

On Thursday, April 22, the Brooklyn Parks and Open Space Coalition (BPOC) and New Yorkers for Parks (NY4P) will host a virtual Brooklyn borough president candidate forum focused on parks, open space, land use, zoning and public land issues in the borough.
