Waiting for Help in Greenpoint
May 24th, 2007

A colorful WNYC radio segment on how old-time Polish residents are being forced out of the Williamsburg/Greenpoint area contains a compelling piece of policy information: two years after the City Council approved the rezoning of the area and allocated $2 million to help long-time residents stay in their homes, none of money has been dispersed.

    Greenpoint is a great place to live. It’s a little village in the city minutes from Manhattan. The new stores and restaurants that are opening up every day are a wonderful addition to the community. I can’t imagine living anywhere else. I am looking forward to the waterfront developments that will open up those gorgeous spaces to the public.

    Development and Progress are always welcome but it shouldnt be at the expense of old immigrant tenants who duly contributed to the society. The $2 million allocated to help the residents are an acknowledgment for the problems these people are facing. This money should be urgently and rightfully distributed.
