Three plaintiffs added to AY eminent domain case
Atlantic Yards Report
Three plaintiffs have been added to the eminent domain lawsuit:
Henry Weinstein, the largest remaining property owner in the footprint who isn't named Ratner, New York City or Metropolitan Transportation Authority,
Peter Williams, whose son Lars was arrested for taking down one of Ratner's surveillance cameras, installed on their own building (great hardball negotiation strategy Bruce!), and
Joseph Pastore, a rent-regulated tenant who lived in his apartment for a mere 39 years before the condemnation notice arrived.
NoLandGrab: Pastore's addition throws a monkey wrench in Ratner's supporters' claims that the project is being stalled by a bunch of NIMBYs who aren't really from the neighborhood.
