Adams announces support for Gowanus rezoning, with NYCHA repairs paramount


Borough President and Democratic mayoral nominee Eric Adams announced his support for the Gowanus Rezoning on Friday, as the neighborhood-wide scheme snakes its way through the city’s land-use change process. 

Adams, whose say as borough president is advisory, but whose influence as the presumed mayor-to-be is significant, hinged his support on the millions of dollars in capital improvements needed in the area’s public housing complexes, the Gowanus Houses and the Wyckoff Gardens.
