Move over, Daniel Goldstein. Dozens of tenants remain living in the footprint of the planned Willoughby Square Park in Downtown Brooklyn, even after their properties were seized by the city early last year through eminent domain. The 10 properties lie on the 1 1/4-acre site between Albee Square, Willoughby and Duffield streets, and their inhabitants allege that although the city has given them a July deadline to move out, they’ve been given little assistance in finding other accommodations. While some will be eligible for affordable housing through the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, others who say they have nowhere to go are facing eviction. [Post]
