Press Rally/Protest In Opposition to Opening of Pawn Shop at 649 Park Place

Crow Hill Community Association and Council Member Letitia James hold rally on October 16, at 12 Noon on corner of Park Place and Franklin Avenue in Crown Heights, Brooklyn in protest of proposed pawn shop

(Brooklyn, NY) – The Crow Hill community is gathering to protest a proposed pawn shop in their community. Crow Hill is a residential community that is working hard to bring renewed life and vitality to their commercial corridor: Franklin Avenue.

Crow Hill is situated in the west section of the 77th Precinct, which is currently experiencing a rise in burglaries, and the Crow Hill Community Association believes an establishment that specializes in buying and selling goods will not be beneficial for its neighborhood. Crow Hill is committed to the revitalization of Franklin Avenue, and will use all of its resources towards the goal of improving quality of life and public safety issues. The Crow Hill Community Association is united in opposing any landlord or developer who wishes to bring inappropriate projects to the community.
