    The towers were reduced in height already. All the developer has to do is throw a little more "green" space at them, and they'll be on it like a pack of wild dogs on a piece of meat. Or, he could point out the massiveness that will be going up on the west side, and show these nuts how lucky they are. But for just once, I wish a developer would tell these people to go to hell already.

    Sadly, stupidity often wins by default; it is tenacious, and therefore very effective in wearing down, and ultimately driving off, any 'sensible' opposition.

    Also, they have a dog in this fight: you don't.

    The easiest way to shut people up in a situation like this is to start singing the national anthem.

    Thanks, amigo.

    I will try to go. Those who attend should try to meet up for some frosty brews afterward.

    That sure sounds like fun... although if we meet before, then the meeting really could get interesting

    True!

    Question Classroom A

    Classroom A? .......... what is the capacity of that classroom: will this be an event that everyone can not attend because there is not enough space to accomodate everyone.

    At the recent community board meeting on the Manhattanville Columbia Campus many people - some of whom I know - were not allowed in because the "Auditorium" was full to capacity.

    just got this in my inbox about the meeting on thursday... I'm definitely going after reading it... everyone who's in for a little WNY meetup send me a PM so we can figure out a place/time to meet.

    Con Ed Site Rezoning

    Public Hearing

    In August, New York City formally began the process to rezone the nine acre site of the former Con Ed plants on First Avenue between 35th and 41st Streets.

    The developerís proposal is too tall, too dense and too commercial:

    ∑ Seven buildings nearly 1.5 times the height of the United Nations
    ∑ A giant office building
    ∑ Over 10,000 new residents in just 5 blocks
    ∑ Hundreds of kids would overwhelm our schools
    ∑ Thousands of cars would snarl traffic across the East Side

    The developerís team will present their plan at Community Board Sixís public hearing. CB6 will then send its recommendation to the City Planning Commission based on your questions and comments at the hearing, and on its own community friendly rezoning plan,.

    Letís hear from you!.

    Date: Thursday, Sept. 20, 2007

    Time: 7pm

    Location: NYU Medical Center
    550 First Avenue
    Classroom A

    Please call Community Board 6 at 212-319-3750 with any questions.

    How long do these meetings usually last? I have an appointment with alcohol at 10.

    I will PM you for the details on the place/time: any time after 6PM would be good for me. Also - I hope it is understood - that my plans may change at the last minute; but at this point I intend to go this WNY meetup.
