  • The Uncertain Legacy of Mayor Bloomberg, Part 2 By Daniel Muhlenberg | April 11, 2012

    As we mentioned in the previous part of this series, Mayor Bloomberg deserves a lot of praise. Our economy hasn’t missed a beat mainly because his policies accounted for the decline of Wall Street by expanding the range of businesses in Manhattan; in media, fashion, the arts, and technology, business owners look at Manhattan neighborhoods as attractive places to conduct business. He invested in the right places. But, in the long run, none of this may matter if Wall Street isn’t fully restored to its former self. And if it isn’t, Bloomberg will be partly to blame. His lack of political foresight, particularly in regards to what is becoming the biggest issue of our time, may prove to be his undoing.

  • The Uncertain Legacy of Mayor Bloomberg, Part 1 By Daniel Muhlenberg | April 10, 2012

    Truly, now is a great time to live and work in New York City. The recession was a blip. The rental apartment market is soaring. Buyers from Brazil, China, and Russia are shelling out millions to purchase luxury apartments in Manhattan. Employment is nearing the 1969 peak of 3,797,700 jobs. And, to top it off, four different reports in the past five months have ranked us as the number one business center in the world. In many ways this success is the handiwork of one Michael Bloomberg, New York City’s mayor since January 1st, 2002. His business-first philosophy has not only sustained the low crime rate that he inherited from Rudy Giuliani – with the help of NYPD Police Chief Ray Kelly, the crime rate has fallen for almost a dozen years - it has diversified New York City’s economy and created new sources of revenue for the city.

  • OWS Returns to Zuccotti Park After Barriers Go Down By Daniel Muhlenberg | January 11, 2012

    In a surprising turn of events, security guards working for Brookfield properties - the owners of Zuccotti Park - took down the barricades which had surrounded the park since November on Tuesday night. This was unexpected for a couple of reasons: Mayor Bloomberg went to great lengths to remove the protesters, and most Financial District residents were upset about their presence and happy to see them go. Unluckily for them, they’re back; since the barriers were removed, over 200 Occupy Wall Street protesters have re-entered the park. Immediately after this happened, conflict between security and protesters picked up right where it left off: Many protesters intentionally disregarded warnings not to lay down in the park, and at least two people were detained for violating those commands.
