Today on Curbed is a story of an activist group in Brooklyn, Concerned Citizens of Greenwood Heights, who videotapes illegal construction in their neighborhood, posts it on YouTube and then links it on their site. This should get the attention of the city agencies that are asleep at the wheel:
Destructoporn: Caught in the (Illegal) Act in BK
The Internet is where it's at. No real estate interests or political ads shaping content. This is a great idea for the people in Queens who are sick of the building crap that goes on and is ignored in their neighborhoods.
Send me your clips and I will post them here and send a link to every city council person, agency head and the mayor.
