Up in Port Chester, there seems to be some eminent domain abuse going on. Check out this petition.
Pretty outrageous, eh? Kind of like Atlantic Yards in Brooklyn, or the Iron Triangle by Shea. It can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time.
Why not use eminent domain to seize the properties of developers caught violating stop work orders and turn them into parks? Kind of like when drug dealers are caught and the government takes their vehicles. Nah...why use it to actually benefit the public? That's not what it was created for!
