Blood from a stone

New York Daily News
November 26, 2021

“In two overwhelming votes Tuesday, the City Council ushered in — we hope — a new day for New York, okaying vital rezonings and, in the process, dealing what should be a death blow to the stranglehold councilmembers have long had on projects of citywide importance that happen to be in their districts.”
“New York City Council took a vote to move forward with expanding the New York Blood Center’s 310 East 67th Street location by 233 vertical feet on Tuesday, a rare move in going against the local council member from the area.”
“The City Council both bucked and abided tradition Tuesday with the approval of a life sciences expansion on the Upper East Side and a sweeping rezoning in Brooklyn.”
“The New York Blood Center’s bitterly debated rezoning easily passed the City Council on Tuesday, ending a yearlong fight and paving the way for the glassy research tower to be built on East 67th Street.”
“The New York City Council voted Tuesday to approve the New York Blood Center’s rezoning proposal for its Upper East Side research facility, clearing the nonprofit’s last major hurdle to transform the 1930s-era building into a life sciences hub.”
“The New York City Council on Tuesday voted to approve a controversial makeover of the longtime home of the New York Blood Center.”
“A supermajority of the City Council should vote today to approve a rezoning of the E. 67th St. home of the New York Blood Center, enabling a critical life-sciences facility to better serve the city and region.”
