Funny, we had retail diversity, lots of it, but the City Council has steadfastly refused to take any actions to preserve it, starting in the 1980s when Ruth Messinger, then-Borough President, introduced a bill to save mom-and-pops and couldn't even get it brought to the floor for a vote. That ship has sailed, sorry to say.
