The real estate developers will not rest until they murder this entire city, from one end to the other, ripping out the guts of every neighborhood.
It is not natural.
It is not inevitable.
It is not "New York is always changing."
It is the outcome of city and state policies. And it can be changed. But New Yorkers will have to wake up and do something--or it's going to be same shit, different day, day after day after day after day. #SaveNYC -- before it's all gutted.
