Is your neighborhood harmed by reckless and out-of-scale real estate development? Are you troubled by the tall towers shadowing Central Park? Are you outraged at the way unregulated air rights transfers keeps allowing Big Developers to dump immense towers in low-rise neighborhoods?

If so, then join those who have decided to do something about it. Here is the press release for an upcoming demonstration.
