Lupica, on Bloomberg's campaign of inevitability, omits DOF and AY

Atlantic Yards Report

The Daily News's Mike Lupica critiques the Mayor's non-campaign reelection campaign, and Norman Oder critiques the critique.

As for better accountability from city agencies, OK, but that omits the performance of the Department of Finance (DOF) in the swift and curious reassessment of the Yankee Stadium site.

And Bloomberg's edifice complex extends to Atlantic Yards, which spurred such controversy that even former Deputy Mayor Dan Doctoroff said, in hindsight, should have gone through the city's Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) rather than the state process that omitted official local input.

NoLandGrab: It's surprising, actually, that Lupica, who's been a consistent and frequent critic of Atlantic Yards, didn't mention the Mayor's unflagging support of the flagging megaproject.
