Terminal

Today, articles in the Times, the Sun, and the Daily News all turn to the Bronx Terminal Market, on behalf of which Anthony attacked Bloomberg’s redevelopment plan as a “sweetheart deal” akin to a “Jets Stadium off Broadway.”

Over at the Neighborhood Retail Alliance blog, spirits are high: “All of our efforts, including the extensive media outreach, seems to be pushing the folks down at the mayor’s office to realize that they can’t simply kick the merchants to the curb.”

But the no-bid development deal with Related Companies was inked last year. And, as the blog also notes, Mike has a knack for tossing out great one-liners that don’t exactly console community merchants: “I was a small businessman…I know what it’s like to be struggling and try to make a payroll.”
