“The Good, The Bad & The Empty” Film Screening

"The Good, The Bad & The Empty" Film Screening

What's the deal with all those empty lots in East Flatbush? CUP Teaching Artist Douglas Paulson and students from the BCCP's afterschool program at Walt Whitman Middle School looked deep into the emptiness and investigated hidden uses, ownership patterns, and alternate futures for the lots right near their school. They interviewed a community development consultant, an affordable housing advocate, a real estate expert, and asked property owners some tough questions to uncover the surprisingly full lives of empty lots.

The world premiere of "The Good, The Bad, & The Empty" was on Tuesday, June 1, at Anthology Film Archives. The screening was followed by a panel discussion with empty lot experts moderated by the documentary crew.
