CAU to the rescue!

New York City's Planning Commission has made a decision that could protect a 111-block zone of the East Village from development. It's voted to rezone the area, including a cap on the height of some buildings along Chrystie Street.

But opponents say the rezoning plan will actually push bigger developments into other neighborhoods. Josephine Lee from the Coalition to Protect Chinatown and the Lower East Side blames Mayor Bloomberg for allowing the plan to move forward.

The Bloomberg Administration says it's responded to the group's concerns by creating a working group in the Community Affairs Unit to focus on their concerns.


Advocates Fear Displaced Development Over Rezoning

The mayor is punting this to the dimwits at CAU so they can pretend to give a shit but do nothing. Yes this man really cares about the people who live here. Four more years!

When Mayor Mike throws a big bash at his posh town house, he puts
the responsibility for the procurement of goodies and serving into the hands of his catering company's staff!

Just so with the LOE/Chinatown down zoning...smack into the hands of Natzli Parvisi's department....his CAU commissioner and former caterer!

Hello out there Matt Gorton!

Wadda ya doin' these days (speaking
of ineffective and former CAU hacks)!

Correction:

I meant "LES", (Lower East Side)
not "LOE".

Don't call the CAU staff "DIMWITS".

They are not intelligent enough!

Wow! Where'd you dig up a photo of Ridgewoodian walking around the Village in the 70's? He looks like he has sideburns as well, quite the hipster!

And those 2 chicks in the overcoats have a certain "nerdy" sexiness to them!

Also, that group of black guys in the background look quite "groovy"!

Nice photo!
