I apologize for the previous post which contained misinformation from a NY1 report. The eminent domain threat is apparently NOT off the table, despite the letter signed by 32 councilmembers stating that it was a non-negotiable stipulation for gaining their support. So sad that Hiram lied to the business owners there and his constituents. For what? Because the Dems made a deal with the devil known as Mayor Bloomberg. Disgusting.
Throw the whole lot of them out in the next election. We don't need selfish dealmakers. We need representatives who will look out for the best interests of the city. Clearly, a megadevelopment boondoggle is not one that we need at this time.
EMINENT DOMAIN ABUSE IS UNAMERICAN. THERE IS NO DEBATE ABOUT THIS.
We'll see whose promises are golden and whose are not worth the paper they're written on tomorrow. I'm already working on the photoshops...
