Back in December I reported that the New York State Supreme Court awarded two small businesses a big victory over Columbia University, ruling that property owners can't be forced to give up land the school needs for an expansion project. The court ruled that the Empire State Development Corporation a state agency tried to stack the deck in Columbia’s favor and called the project a "Scheme". The court said that NY state "colluded" with Columbia to produce the very conditions that would then allow ESDC to seize property. The court ruling said "taking the properties to benefit (9 comments)

Kudos to the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation for keeping our monuments clean. While standing in front of my listing at The Monterey waiting for a buyer, I watched a woman from NYC parks and recreation clean "Lafayette and Washington" the monument at Lafayette Square. Hopefully she was able to get out the blue graffitti stain on the monument's base. The spray didn't seem to do the job so it looked like they patched it and covered with tape. I'm having an Open House at The Monterey (directly opposite the monument) today from 12:30 - 2:00 (8 comments)

While our country confronts the enviromental disaster in the Gulf Coast, we're reminded yet again of the need to transition to clean energy sources. New York City and State is taking the lead by constructing the ‘Solar Pipeline’, which includes a Solar Map and Solar Empowerment Zones that will integrate solar energy into our nation’s largest city and most complex grid.

Solar power is a reliable, renewable (17 comments)
