Environment

Dear Brooklyn,

I love you so much, even more than Soho. You are like the good part of the Upper West Side of Manhattan, but without all those ugly high-rises.

Urban Planning & Public Space

Employment

Dear Brooklyn,

I would like to see many worker-owned retail establishments in Brooklyn so that shoppers can support local residents rather than out of town corporations. I hope that the City of New York will support worker-ownership as a way to lift people out of poverty. Check out the New York City Network of Worker Cooperatives - http://www.nycworker.coop
