Ground Report, Gubernatorial Candidate Challenges New York Establishment

Albany lawyer Warren Redlich anounced his candidacy for New York governor on Monday, Feb. 1st at 10am in the Legislative Correspondents Association Press Room in the Legislative Office Building. Currently serving on the Guilderland, NY Town Board, Redlich will seek the Republican and Libertarian Party nominations. The theme of his campaign is "Stop Wasting Money."

He hopes to create a movement for regime change in New York uniting supporters of the Ron Paul and Tea Party movements with Greens, Democrats, independents and others who are likewise opposed to corporate welfare. He opposed the Wall Street bailouts.

Redlich calls for elimination of state government departments such as the Empire State Development Corporation which promote corporate welfare and eminent domain abuse. He opposes instances of eminent domain abuse such as Willets Point in Queens, Atlantic Yards in Brooklyn and Columbia's scheme in West Harlem.

NoLandGrab: And, unlike some gubernatorial candidates, it's a safe bet that he will neither seek, nor accept, any campaign donations from Bruce C. Ratner.

What will happen by 2035?

Muslims will outnumber Christians in Britain.

Jerusalem will lose its Jewish majority, if those predictions are accurate.

In addition, 2035 is also the deadline the City and State of New York have given to Forest City Ratner to complete the Atlantic Yards project.

NLG: Yet Ratner and the City and the State all still swear that the project will be done in 10 years. Trust them.

Brownstoner, Judge Doesn't Immediately Rule on AY Condemnation

On Friday Judge Abraham G. Gerges of State Supreme Court somewhat unexpectedly declined to immediately green-light the Empire State Development Corporation's request for final approval of the seizure via eminent domain of properties in the Atlantic Yards footprint.

A Child Grows, Street Closures and Bus Removal to happen or not?

It seems, sadly, that Atlantic Yards is going to become a reality. So, get ready for traffic, pollution and noise.

Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn, More Fantasy from ESDC 'Experts'

Atlantic Yards Report reveals today that the August KPMG report on housing in Brooklyn--which the ESDC used to prove that the massive dose of housing in the Atlantic Yards project could be absorbed in ten years--was, to put it kindly, fanciful. It reported entirely incorrect sales figures for the Oro Condos and Richard Meier's On Prospect Park.
