Park Slope Group Sues Methodist Over Expansion

BROOKLYN -

A preservation group is suing to block an expansion of Methodist Hospital in Park Slope to include new operating rooms, a cancer center and after-hours urgent-care, The Wall Street Journal reported. Preserve Park Slope Inc. says the Board of Standards and Appeals overstepped its authority when it approved a zoning variance. They also object to the modern design, which would be out of character with the neighborhood’s brownstones.
