Public Advocate Responds To The Announcement Of A Green Energy Manufacturing Hub In South Brooklyn

January 13th, 2021

Press Release

"I am grateful that today, Governor Cuomo listened to our calls to build an offshore wind turbine manufacturing hub at the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal. As I have consistently said-- alongside an incredible coalition of activists and local, state, and federal elected officials-- we can and must revitalize our coastline and support the Sunset Park community in a way that is environmentally and economically beneficial. We made this argument in opposing the Industry City rezoning, and I am glad it is now being heard in favor of alternatives.

"This project presents an incredible opportunity for the revitalization of the New York City industrial waterfront that will create good jobs and clean energy at the same time - part of a just transition for New York City and State. In the immediate recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis, and the long term economic and environmental sustainability of our city, this project is crucial and this announcement a victory for climate justice."
