Media Coverage of Hooters Plans to Enter North Flatbush

A couple articles from the last couple days about Hooters' efforts to secure a foothold in Park Slope or Prospect Heights:
Hooters is not the type of economic development Prospect Heights and Park Slope need. We will fight Hooters vigorously on all available fronts. Our neighborhoods - many blocks of which have been land marked as part of either the Prospect Heights or Park Slope historical districts - have experienced a tremendous resurgence in the last decades through organic growth built on and by the diversity of residents and businesses that call this area home. We have no need for outsiders like Hooters who literally want to "belly up to the bar" only now to reap economic benefits from a community that does not share their values.
