NYT Covers Carroll Gardens Homeless Shelter Plan

People have to go somewhere, and no neighborhood is above contributing
to alleviating the homeless problem.

This particular proposal has some sketchy details and characters
involved. Given the profit to be made in the city's Rube Goldberg
homeless housing programs, Councilman Lander, the BP and our other
elected officials are right to ask some sharp questions about this

Sad to think that if the DOB was doing its job in the first place and
policing architects like Robert Scarano when he was sliding his
illegal zoning monstrosities through the self certification process,
we'd be having a very different conversation.

I meant to post this story Tuesday, which has significant background on some of the figures involved.
