Pro-development individuals and organizations in the city of New York need a way to organize against the NIMBY folks themselves and the groups that support them. From sensible transit solutions to reasonable proposals for housing, commercial development, and whichever other solutions that can improve New York City, many such organizations are operating unencumbered. These syndicates are oftentimes engaged in muddying the waters, driving up the costs to taxpayers and removing any potential for specific, potentially-beneficial growth patterns in the future. This current, bogged-down, selfish, cowardly, emasculated state of public discourse is completely unacceptable, and should absolutely be stopped, especially when New York faces massive potential economic ruin.

This is why this discussion, while it certainly is centered on New York’s issues, is inclusive of any other city as well, as New York’s economic reach is world-scale, and the stakes in this city affect every other city on the globe.
