In The Rezone

New, 8 comments

The Gotham Gazette takes on the meaty topic of the legacy of Bloomberg's rezoning rampage: The Bloomberg administration has rezoned one sixth of the total land in the five boroughs -- more than the last six administrations combined, Bloomberg said during his State of the City address earlier this year. Of the more than 84 rezonings, the City Council has not rejected a single one. Such impressive numbers, though, conceal a growing unease in many parts of New York. Advocates in some neighborhoods fear the administration is fueling gentrification by giving developers a relatively free hand in working class neighborhoods, while simultaneously protecting more affluent areas from larger-scale development." And don't forget about the slideshow. [Gotham Gazette]
