Won't someone please think of the horses?

From Brooklyn Paper:
City seeks ‘stable-izing’ effect in Kensington
By Sarah Portlock
The city moved forward with rezoning an eight-square-block area near the Kensington Stables — a move that concerned locals hope will protect the area from large-scale development encroaching on their turf. (read whole story)
So it seems like the folks at Community Board 7 have scored a pretty major victory for people who want to see a limit on building heights in this 8-block area. Apparently large-scale development has been spooking the horses at the stables. Then again, maybe they just need to teach their horses to not be so scared all the time. Maybe some sort of alfalfa-based hypnosis regimen.
