Adams endorses alternate proposals for Flatbush African burial ground


Borough President Eric Adams on Tuesday declared his opposition to a planned affordable housing development in Flatbush said to sit atop a centuries-old African burial ground.

The development, at the former site of PS 90 on the corner of Bedford and Church avenues, was announced by City Hall and area Councilmember Mathieu Eugene during the summer of 2020, and has stirred controversy in the neighborhood ever since.
