In his My View earlier this week, Mayor Scalera delivered this defeatist message: "It's time to put to bed this pipe dream that Scenic Hudson or the Open Space Institute would ride up to Hudson on white horses and pony up millions of bucks to buy the port in an eminent domain proceeding. They won't."
While it's true the two organizations cannot get involved in an eminent domain action, that doesn't mean that they cannot help us resolve the current waterfront conflict. A letter to Scenic Hudson and Open Space Institute, written by Jennifer Arenskjold on behalf of Hudson business and property owners, requests their help in a way that does not involve eminent domain.
