Massive affordable housing development opens in Brownsville

Hundreds of new affordable housing units have come to Brownsville, thanks to local do-gooders who paid millions to develop the long-time-coming Ebenezer Plaza development. 

The first phase of the project opened Friday atop two lots — one at 672 Powell St. and the other at 96 New Lots Ave, housing a combined 315 units of affordable housing units.
