Lost Futures Cancelled

So a group called the Center for Urban Pedagogy had planned to lead a tour tomorrow called “The Lost Futures of Governor’s Island,” a tour of the sites of “unrealized plans from the 1930s to the 1990s, including a luxury housing complex, homeless shelter, casino, and airport.”

But apparently Dan Doctoroff’s office is clamping down on the abandoned island. Tours are now contingent on his approval, organizers were told, and tomorrow’s has been cancelled.

One sometime tour-guide writes The Politicker to ask whether City Hall is trying to keep its Governor’s Island unrealization under wraps. Lost Futures Cancelled
