But they are now extending it to parts of SoHo and TriBeCa, despite protests from SoHo property owners.
Mr. Chen claims that his Clean Chinatown campaign got $7.25 million from LMDC post 9/11 to clean up areas in SoHo. Yet by his own admission, his group abrogated that responsibility and left the SoHo Partnership - a charity - to do their dirty work, while Chen's group pocketed the taxpayers' money that was intended to clean SoHo!
Is this the shenanigans that we will expect from his BID?
The BID claims that it includes Little Italy, yet their own map belies this assertion: three blocks of Mulbery Street have been removed at the insistence of the restaurant owners.
I've never seem a BID face such opposition. This duck is dead in the water.
