Quotable Quote

         “Eminent domain is being used as the tool to shoehorn in density that would not be achievable under normal circumstances. The fact that these three examples [The New York Times and Bank of America Towers as well as the Atlantic Yards project in Brooklyn] are current era projects separated by only a few years bespeaks something of the new proclivity to use eminent domain to force private owners to transfer their property to other private owners. Often the transfers being forced involve the new, after-transfer owners making similar or identical use of the land as the original owners even though the original owners’ actual buildings might be torn down.” Noticing New York,   newyorkblogspot.com January 11, 2009.
