City backs off Bklyn eminent domain plan

Great news out of Downtown Brooklyn today - the city has decided that they will redraw their plans rather than use eminent domain to take a home believed to have been used by the Underground Railroad and turn it into a parking lot.

Unless you live in the holy four, ES, WS, GV, BH, there is almost never a real victory.

Sooner, or later, they will get you.
