Aaron Short follows up on the Greenline’s story on the Greenpoint Hospital RFP. Greenline had reported that – in response to community outrage over the award of the project to a Bronx developer – the City had put a hold on the project in order to “reconsider” a neighborhood proposal for the site. Now Short has the City walking back that claim, saying that “the ‘hold’ was merely a rumor”.
It will be interesting to see where this leads. (And I guess that “line of communication” that HPD promised to open with community is still a little backed up.)
