The Four Borough Neighborhood Preservation Alliance works to promote "sensible development." Now they're celebrating individuals and groups who've done that around these parts, including the Crown Heights North Association, who've been active in working on that area's historic designation and organizing house tours; and South Brooklyn Legal Service, who helped preserve the Duffield Abolitionist homes from getting snatched up by eminent domain (that area is now being considered for an exhibit and nick-named "Abolitionist Place"). The group has helped residents fight foreclosures and use the anti-harassment law.
