Brooklyn Public Library head Linda Johnson seeking to sell some property to raise money for repairs

NY Daily News – “The new head of the Brooklyn Public Library is looking for a way to cash in on the library’s crumbling real estate. Linda Johnson, who was named president/CEO of the BPL in August after serving as interim director for a year, is pushing for a deal that would let library reap proceeds from selling property or development rights and use the money to make much-needed repairs. “There are certain pieces of real estate we have that are very valuable,” Johnson said. “I’m trying to figure out . . . how to take the valuable real estate and use it to take care of my other assets. And not to leave that neighborhood, but just to do some kind of interesting project with a developer.”
