Steve Levin, Democratic City Council nominee for the 33rd District, has been shopping for a space for his new office (he’s heavily favored to win over his Conservative Party nominee). Levin won’t take over David Yassky’s office office at 114 Court Street, preferring an office located more in the southern center of the district, closer to the G train, and on ground level (making it wheelchair accessible).
NY Post: Levin, who lives in Greenpoint, noted that he was looking to spend less than $6,000 per month on commercial space, his allocated budget from the City Council, and found prices on Atlantic Avenue too high.
Boerum Hill Association President Howard Kolins encouraged him instead to look more closely at Schermerhorn Street which currently has lots of open storefronts and new buildings coming on line soon.
“$6,000 a month and under is not a lot of money for this area, per square footage. I’m not sure how much space he needs,” said Kolins. “If he winds up in Boerum Hill, that would be great. We would be thrilled.”
