Yesterday, The Indypendent published a recap of the march and rally, which included this video...

The stormproofing project is in the final stages of the city’s land use review process. The Planning Commission approved the plan back on Monday. The plan will head to City Council next for a hearing on Thursday, Oct. 3. This link has details.

Paging Dr. Gerhels. Dr. Gerhels. Paging Dr. Gerhels. Where is his report? It seems from the Patch article that maybe just maybe Death-of-the-City de Blasio is having second thoughts... or maybe first thoughts since I can't believe he even had a thought about the ramifications of this plan. But if he is looking for a way out... Where is Dr. Gerhels... Paging Dr. Gerhels... Dr. Gerhels...
