Court Says No To Columbia Land Grab
Thank goodness somebody still cares about the people of this city. Columbia University (which already has a pretty large piece of land in upper Manhattan)recently took action to gain a bigger piece of the Harlem pie. Fortunately the citizens of Harlem did not take this news lying down. The court ruled that Columbia could not claim eminent domain to gain more land.
If only we could get that type of ruling in Brooklyn regarding the Atlantic Yards. Maybe then Brooklyn could have a reason to be in the season. For now my people in Harlem would should enjoy this victory they've had it hard these past few years getting pushed out by gentrification and a housing bubble. At least some of yall get to stay.
Hands off Harlem!
