Upzoning Goes Down in Midtown

November 13, 2013

Thanks in part to Bill De Blasio’s election, and the work of Dan Garodnick (with some pushing by the Committee to Save the NYPL) the destructive Bloomberg plan to turn Midtown East into Shanghai west went down today. See the NYT front page story. This development (or lack thereof) is proof that the people can have power when interests are allied. Next we hope that the Central Library Plan, which is predicated on upzoning the 40th Street Mid-Manhattan Library site, will meet the same fate.
