There is nothing wrong with the process, but instead, its the people calling the shots. NYC has been doing quite well way before these hacks came into office and power, and we can't stifle decades of economic growth, housing additions all of a sudden. The current city administration needs to go, and I hope the voters try something new.

Under Bloomberg, the city was great. Under DeBlasio, in the beginning, it was okay... but now... now it seems like a mockery, with a mayor that is to busy striving to get less than 5% of the vote, which he will get, if not less. He's pulling a Chris Christie, and abandoning the city for his own selfish interests.
A simple solution would be to increase property taxes on the neighborhood by the amount of the new revenue killed. I am sure these few NIMBY loudmouths would be driven away real quick.
