ACORN backing the good fight in Queens
Lookie who forgot to take a page from the Bruce Ratner community playbook by promising ACORN a fat contract to administer affordable housing.
From today's events listing on The Real Estate Observer:
12:45 p.m. Queens workers and ACORN members protest redevelopment project that will displace businesses in Willets Point; EDC headquarters, 110 William St.
NoLandGrab: It's nice to see ACORN backing the Willets Point businesses. Hope the grassroots community group doesn't turn its back on its constituents again by signing on to a deal that directs a minimal amount of benefit to its own base.
