I didn't realize it but a Web site has been established, www.savedumbo.org, to help raise awareness for this issue. The Web site cites its mission as follows:
the brooklyn bridge and neighborhood of dumbo are currently being threatened by developers as historic buildings are being demolished and out-of-context replacements are being erected, all without regard for the interests of the local community. this site aims to give supporters of the brooklyn bridge and residents of dumbo a unified voice so that together we can preserve these unique landmarks. please join us in our current fight against dock street dumbo.
