In the Observer: Obama’s Web Operation, Rangel’s Landlords

Jason Horowitz writes that Barack Obama’s campaign has essentially become a “multimedia company capable of competing with the traditional press,”although tight control of the campaign’s message has alienated some of the Netroots crowd.

Dana Rubenstein looks into Charlie Rangel’s landlords–a powerful family that one broker calls “old-school and reserved.”

Rubinstein also reports that New York’s real estate industry is divided over the presidential race. 

Eliot Brown discovers that the last property owner in West Harlem who won’t make a deal with Columbia has recently become a little pessimistic. 

Brown also sits down with one of the largest landowners in Willets Point, who is not pleased that Michael Bloomberg “loves to embrace eminent domain.”
