Ferrer told the [Daily News] Editorial Board that he supported the project's affordable housing and other benefits it would bring to the community, but he lambasted the overall "secrecy and lack of transparency" surrounding the development.
He also rebuked what he called "apparent abuses of eminent domain," citing a secret memo that recently emerged about two businesses that could be evicted if a site were not made available by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
TimesRatnerReport analyses the article, wondering about the "secret memo" and how can Ferrer justify eminent domain for "underperforming" businesses.
