Balloons Over Billyburg Protest Development

What was the deal with those balloons over Williamsburg and Greenpoint yesterday? Blogger Urbanphoto (better known as the Real Renters agent behind the amusing Space Independent blog-driven property listings) reports, "Apparently they are meant to signify the future height of the proposed buildings along the waterfront. With the final hearing date just around the corner (April 4th), activists are trying to drum up as large an army as possible to help protect the hood from Space Elevators and weird ribbon cutting ceremonies."
