  • Prime NYCHA land for sale....
    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324634304578539691701408574.html?mod=WSJ_NY_LEFTTopStoriesThis trend is not new, but it is certainly accelerating as a result of declining federal support for NYCHA. Unless the new mayor and adminstration can find some OTHER source of funding besides selling land, this seems a certainty.P.S. The land isn't for sale, it is actually a 99 year lease.

    The completion of the new WTC is able to serve as a catalyst for emotional closure to some, and a beacon of nationalistic pride to others.While these are understandable goals, are they real if the building takes a really long time to be filled?http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article/20130512/REAL_ESTATE/305129977
