NEWS FROM THE FIGHT FOR A HUMAN-SCALE CITY: ROUND-UP #8, WITH A CALL TO ACTION

By LYNN E.

A Picket at the REBNY Gala in Midtown on Jan 21st, 6:30.  Please come. 

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?  Has the city ignored your neighborhood’s pleas for a community-led development plan?  Do they dismiss your efforts to get historic district protections?   If so, then join those who have decided to do something about it.  Here is the press release for an upcoming demonstration.

Press Release for the REBNY Picket Reads as Follows:

“The annual  banquet of the real estate industry’s most powerful lobbying group, the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY) takes place on January 21st, 2016 at the New York Hilton, 1336 6th Avenue at 6:30 p.m.

Every year politicians in New York City and Albany flock to this gala to rub elbows with the city’s most powerful lords of real estate.  How can they resist? REBNY’s massive political action committees have long funded politicians both in New York City and Albany.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
