Bloomberg: Sorry, NIMBYs!

New, 3 comments

Downtown Express got Mayor Bloomberg to comment on a pair of raging controversies in fancy Downtown 'hoods?the Tower O' Garbage and the redevelopment of Pier 40. On the former, Bloomberg defended the garbage truck garage in Hudson Square while saying he understands the opposition's hurt feelings: "Not in my backyard is something that everybody feels, me included." He pointed out there will also be a new garbage transfer station only a mile-and-a-half from his home! Meanwhile, on the Pier 40 headaches, Bloomberg said, "I can tell you it's not been the subject of pillow talk." His girlf, Diana Taylor, is chair of the Hudson River Park Trust. [Downtown Express]
