Starting Monday night March 19th, every night until March 23rd, between 10pm to  5am the next morning, construction crews will fully close Dean Street between 6th Avenue and Flatbush Avenue in front of 461 Dean Street for street paving  and striping operations.
In addition, construction crews will close 2 to 3 north bound lanes on Flatbush Avenue between Dean Street and 5th Avenue for street paving and striping operations. All impacted street areas will be reopened each morning at 5 am to regular traffic.
Flaggers and signage will be provided, as applicable, to redirect traffic and pedestrians around the work areas.


devlots2-bwThe former HPD sites on Bergen and Dean are slated to be developed as affordable housing by the city. Join your neighbors to discuss building size, local infrastructure, open space and housing related issues.


  • Do the developments have to conform to the same size as
    neighboring buildings? Not necessarily.
  • Can the size be reduced to expand our playground? Maybe.
  • How many affordable housing units? Unknown.
  • How deep will the degrees of affordability be? Likely greater than on
    sites owned by private parties.
  • Do we have the infrastructure to support additional new development?
  • What’s your opinion?
