Ben Haber’s recent writing is spot on. City Council members have sold their collective souls to the moguls who have already blighted Citi Field with its hideous signage and their real estate arms that will transform a thriving business community into a megalithic shopping mall.
I can understand former Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s carnal sidling with Fred Wilpon and exerting his pressure on the Council to exile these business people.
I cannot, however, fathom how Mayor Bill de Blasio, the consummate advocate for new city housing, would accommodate this land grab that was “sold” to the public and Council as parks and affordable housing.
Does anyone in government have any morals or shame?
