The Lower Manhattan Coastal Resiliency (LMCR) Project Is Underway!
As part of Mayor de Blasio’s OneNYC climate resiliency plan, the City of New York is moving forward with a new project to protect Lower Manhattan neighborhoods from coastal flooding risk from Two Bridges to Battery Park City. We need your help!
–The mayor rejects a report showing that systemic failures within his administration caused the Rivington House fiasco. He said yesterday, ““It was a mistake. It shouldn’t have happened. It will not happen again… I don’t see anything systemic in it. I don’t see anything untoward in it. I think it was a situation where something got missed.” [Daily News]
–The State Attorney General has gone to court in an effort to stop the Allure Group from buying a nursing home in Harlem. The Allure Group, of course, is the firm that sold Rivington House to luxury condo developers. [The Real Deal]
–In explaining the move, an assistant AG said, “The Allure Group’s direct involvement in the demise of the Rivington House home raises sufficient concern about the proposed purchasers’ suitability and fitness.” [New York Post]
–Federal prosecutors say Sheldon Silver should not remain free while his appeal winds its way through the courts. [AP via ABC News]
–Puck Fair and the BP gas station on Lafayette Street have now been demolished to make room for an 80,000 sf office and retail complex. [EV Grieve]
–The de Blasio administration said it’s ahead of schedule, having created or preserved about 53,000 units of affordable housing. [New York Times]
