Activists protests Armory plan

Activists argue that the ball is now in Cumbo’s court after the NYC Planning Commission on Oct. 30 voted 11-1 in favor of the redevelopment plan for the Bedford-Union Armory located at 1579 Bedford Ave. Two people were arrested at the CPB meeting. According to sources, 50 protesters were present.

The plan calls for 20 percent affordable housing, which does not square with activists and politicians who say that affordable housing must be 100 percent, adding that the armory is “public property.”
