Thank you, Benjamin Haber!

We were happy to read Benjamin Haber's letter to the editor in this week's Queens Courier:

Notwithstanding Bloomberg’s claim to the contrary, he has consistently been a vigorous supporter of fat cat real estate interests and had disdain for the welfare of the poor and the middle class.

It should come as no surprise consistent with Bloomberg’s arrogance and indifference to the plight of the hundreds of small businesses in Willets Point and their thousands of employees, that the city is now pursuing eminent domain to turn private property over to private developers. The claim they will be relocated and retrained is nonsense and it will never happen.

It's good to see that people out there understand what is really going on at Willets Point and are not fooled by the false claims of the EDC, Mayor Bloomberg or Claire Shulman.
