Prospect Heights
Brooklyn, New York

This homeless shelter for almost 90 families at 603 Dean Street was vacated on January 15, 2010. It will be demolished and this entire city block would be used as a "temporary" parking lot for the Barclays Center arena of Atlantic Yards.

A protest against the closure was held at Freddy's Bar on January 16, 2010.
