Along the Canal

Work on the Second Avenue parole center is moving along.


Last week

Plans for Borough-Wide Parole Reporting Center Not Sitting Well With Some Brooklyn Residents

Seems like it would have been wiser to have kept several smaller parole offices scattered throughout the borough, which would have provided better access for parolees, and provoked less anxiety in residents.  A smaller-sized center right here would have been the smart choice.  The Department of Corrections kept quiet about the planned move for three years, and this lack of transparency, plus the huge size of the center, were bound to fuel the NIMBY fire.  Still, I doubt the center's presence will be the nightmare scenario that people fear.
