More opinions from Crains.

The letters to the editor in the May 19th edition of Crain's New York Business followed up on Alair Townsend's recent remarks about CBAs being "zoning for sale" and "government sanctioned extortion."

Jesse Masyr, the attorney who worked with the WHLDC to negotiate a preliminary agreement with Columbia, wrote in to express support for community coalitions and the CBA process. He also explained that "the time has come for the city of New York to have an open, honest dialogue about whether CBAs should be a part of the land-use landscape."
