Mike Bloomberg hired his very good friend, the worst city planner in NYC's history mega millionaire socialite city planner Amanda Burden. She would prove to be the people's BURDEN tearing down our historic neighborhood causing massive displacement as she aided and abetted developers with sky piercing mirrored building that reflect a history destroyed and communities no longer welcome. The mirrored buildings are a narcissist's wet dream, Amanda the socialite, the people's Burden and Mike Bloomberg's wet dream. Our nightmare.
My letter in The Village Voice....letter of the week....if more isn't done to preserve our historic neighborhoods and our communities, you will have to visit a recreation in a museum or Las Vegas. http://www.villagevoice.com/2006-06-20/news/letters/
The editor picked the title "Carbon Copy" and that is the NYC Amanda Burden and Bloomberg have bequeathed us, a soulless empty shell of a city, all smoke and mirrors like the empty p.r. machine that even the press sold out and bought in to only to be exposed as one giant "flim flam" man at 10:00PM November 3 when they had to eat their words....it was not a landslide victory but the opposite...neck and neck, to close to call. The press had made sure not to cover my art work and my opposition that was a resistance that grew like a wild fire on YouTube so it was a pleasure to see them exposed as they had to openly admit the truth...which I talked about endlessly on YouTube...the people's anger... could not be ignored...voter apathy yes...nothing new but voter anger was something that press covered up as if they were living in Bloomberg-ville not NYC and they all had to tell the truth report the news...finally.
