In the Rezone

During the tenure of Mayor Michael Bloomberg, NYC completed 124 rezonings, covering nearly 40 percent of the city's acreage. Bloomberg has celebrated the rezonings as a major part of his legacy, but the changes meant a loss of industrial real estate and manufacturing jobs in areas of Brooklyn. How will Bloomberg's development initiatives be remembered in a city with such strong industrial roots? Can the maker community take the place of traditional manufacturing? Curbed NY has a thorough look at a decade of intensive rezoning. [Curbed NY]
