New book looks at city’s overdevelopment

October 22, 2008 04:14PM

A new book called “New York for Sale: Community Planning Confronts
Global Real Estate” will be released next month, written by Tom Angotti,
the director of Hunter College’s Center for Community Planning and Development.
New York’s overdevelopment was talked about in
a panel discussion tied to the book on Monday at the Museum of the City of New York. Angotti was on
the panel, along with Real Estate Board of New York President Steven Spinola,
Vice President of operations for development company Full Spectrum NY Yvonne Isaac and Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer. “The
truth of the matter is that New York
City has become addicted to real estate, because of
the revenue it generates,” Spinola said in the discussion.
