Help Is Coming (just hold on)

More than one person asked, during last year’s rezoning of Williamsburg and Greenpoint, What is going to happen to all those carpenters and metal workers once the condos come?

Oh, we’ll think of something, came the response. How about $4 million?

Late last fall, Paul Moses discovered that the $4 million still hadn’t arrived but that industrial tenants were being shoved out.

Today, the Department of Small Business Services announced that the $4 million has arrived.

Or has it? Looks like you will have to check back with the Mayor’s Office for Industrial and Manufacturing Businesses “in the coming weeks … to find details,” according to the press release. What the administration has done is figure out, along with the City Council, how to divvy up the pot.
