To the Editor:
I am only unhappy that Matthew Schuerman’s article, “Forest City Ratner Gives to Coney Island Carousel, Other Bloombergian Public Projects” [April 2], didn’t run on page one!
The amount of New York City given away in land, tax abatements, credits and the like is the 21st-century incarnation of Tammany Hall.
I truly believe that if New Yorkers had any idea of the extent to which we have been—and are still being—robbed, there would be riots in the streets.
NoLandGrab: Additionally, it's good that the daily papers don't cover this stuff it could destablize the entire system of political patronage.
