According to a report on Gothamist yesterday, “The National Park Service has endorsed the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation’s plan to transfer the Civil War-era Brooklyn Tobacco Warehouse in DUMBO to performing arts presenter St. Ann’s Warehouse. The National Parks Service issued the decision on Monday (see below letter) that it supports its own 2008 decision that allowed the state to redraw the map of the Brooklyn waterfront to allow a historic building in a park to be redeveloped into a theater. As you may recall, the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation (OPRHP) requested the park boundary be amended in 2008, which prompted local community organizations to sue to stop the renovation.
