A 254-apartment, 23-story luxury development in previously-affordable Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn has cleared its last legal hurdle. The developer, Hudson Co., had been sued by four community groups because the environmental review for the building didn't consider the strain the new apartments would place on the neighborhood, its affordability, and its subway lines, which are already over-crowded. But this week a judge ruled the company did not lie when it said there was no controversy surrounding the development, which is a lie.

For context: Brooklyn is the least affordable place in America.
