A Better Way NYC (formerly Save the Promenade) is a grassroots group committed to identifying alternatives to the NYC DOT’s proposed BQE redevelopment plan, which would replace the Brooklyn Heights Promenade with an elevated six-lane highway. The plan would cause irreparable damage to the NYC community and its economy, while shrouding neighboring areas in hazardous pollutants and destroying a national historic landmark. We are seeking to partner with key government officials, environmental and engineering experts, and legal advisors, while mobilizing community partnerships to ensure long-term sustainable improvements to New York City’s transportation infrastructure.

The Brooklyn Heights Association, is the organized voice of the Heights. We work to preserve our historic buildings, protect the views, advocate for thoughtful urban planning, and promote safety and security on our streets. When there is a threat, we help to organize the community’s response. So whether you rent a studio, own a brownstone, or live in a high-rise, we work to protect everyone’s stake in this neighborhood. That’s why membership in the BHA is so important. The more members we have, the stronger our voice; the more financial support we generate, the more impact we have in pursuing actions to protect and advance the community’s interests; and the more volunteers we enlist, the more we can accomplish as a neighborhood.
