Pacific Park, neighborhood appropriation machine

Remember how Pacific Park is supposed to be a "neighborhood from scratch"?

That's not enough. Now, according to Pacific Park Brooklyn's Twitter account, other attractions in nearby neighborhoods are part of  "Why we love walking around #PacificParkBK."

This is Trump territory, brazen, casual lies. It reminded me of songwriter John Pinamonti's prescient 2007 song, The Burrow, which contains the lines (link to video), "It makes me sad/yeah it's such a pity/they're trying to rename Brooklyn/Forest City." (Just substitute "Pacific Park" for "Forest City.")
