Brooklyn Reaches for the Sky

The Brooklyn Cultural District is getting a lot of new neighbors—all at once.

Five rental towers are poised to bring more than 2,200 households to the streets that surround the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

“We are saying welcome to the neighborhood,” said Katy Clark, president of BAM.

The area had once been a gritty expanse of empty and underused buildings divided by parking lots created when government programs decades ago cleared the sites in the name of urban renewal.
