Earlier this summer, New York Methodist Hospital announced that it was planning to expand its facilities, on the eastern portion of the block bounded by 7th and 8th Avenues and 5th and 6th Streets. The hospital presented preliminary plans at a meeting held by Community Board 6 and the Park Slope Civic Council on July 11th (here’s coverage of that meeting via DNAinfo, as well as a more recent update).
If you’re interested in what New York Methodist Hospital is planning, there are two public meetings later this month at which the hospital’s plans will be discussed. The first is a meeting of Community Board 6‘s Landmarks and Land Use Committee, on Thursday, September 26th (exact time and location TBD), and the second is a public forum hosted by the Park Slope Civic Council, which will take place on Monday, September 30th, at 6:30 p.m., at Temple Beth Elohim, at Garfield Place and 8th Avenue. We’ll provide more details on those meetings as they become available.
In addition, a group formed this summer called Preserve Park Slope is hosting an open public meeting tomorrow evening (Tuesday, September 10th) at 7 p.m., in the auditorium at St. Saviour High School, 588 6th Street just east of 8th Avenue, at which they plan to “discuss quality of life issues relating to the proposed New York Methodist Hospital expansion project.”
