‘Third Time the Charm’

Bill Egbert in the Daily News recounts how the city, to defend its deal with Related at the Bronx Terminal Market, first said it was a private transaction between the developer and the previous leasee (except the city negotiated the deal), second that Related just bought out the previous lease (except two new leases were formed), and finally, that the city had the power to make any sort of deal it wanted since it had to do with a public market. That reasoning worked, and a judge determined the merchants have to leave.
