Made in NY: Innovation Districts, Waterfront Rezoning, and Post-Industrial Gentrification
Tarry Hum
Professor, Queens College CUNY

Sunset Park, Brooklyn is one of New York City’s remaining working waterfront neighborhoods. Its industrial infrastructure includes several massive public and privately-owned complexes including Industry City, Liberty View Industrial Plaza, Brooklyn Army Terminal, and Bush Terminal. Central to Mayor de Blasio’s New York Works plan is capital investment in Bush Terminal to establish a Made in NY campus for garment manufacturers and film and TV production. Most recently, the Department of City Planning certification of Industry City’s rezoning for a Special Sunset Park Innovation District to expand destination retail, office space, and build two luxury hotels on the industrial waterfront was delayed by City Council Member Carlos Menchaca and Community Board 7 to allow for more community engagement and review. My talk examines the real estate imperatives of innovation districts and planning for the in/exclusion of Sunset Park’s heavily working class, immigrant Latinx-Asian residents.

The Lectures in Planning Series (LiPS) is an initiative of the Urban Planning program at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.

All lectures are free and open to the public. For more information or to make program suggestions, email lipscolumbiaplanning@gmail.com.
