Bloomberg’s Buboes

Spreads

Jeremiah’s Vanishing New York posted this image from a 2004 brochure given out by the city’s department of Economic Development.  It carefully maps out the areas Bloomberg plans to overhaul during his term.  Note the concentration in the outer boroughs – with a particular focus on Staten Island. Bloomberg is looking to Manhattanize the outer boroughs and spread ‘development’ as class war – that is the other half of what is at stake in the Term Limits vote today.
