Marty's Vision Thing

From The Brooklyn Eagle:

On Wednesday, August 10, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz hosted a long term planning meeting at Borough Hall for the transformation of 4th Avenue, and announced the formation of a task force, chaired by Chief of Staff Carlo Scissura, to oversee planning of project specifics, including tree planting and use of a newly expanded Times Plaza — the intersection of Fourth, Atlantic and Flatbush avenues.

Key initiatives are to include tree planting, decorated subway median vents, improved safety, new retail development and (my heart really sank when I saw this one) "the co-naming" of Fourth Avenue.  Oh Lord, when Markowitz is involved, we know we're in for something awful.  We're right.  Brooklyn sodding Boulevard.  Oh come on, Marty, leave it out.
