While researching Friday’s post about the Danspace tower getting killed, we stumbled across something interesting: In January, the city acquired six properties in the BAM Cultural District via eminent domain. All six properties were within the block bounded by Fulton Street, Ashland Place, Lafayette Avenue and Rockwell Place. We should have noticed this earlier, as the BAM properties were actually acquired as part of a larger eminent domain grab that included several lots within the footprint of Willoughby Square Park. We reported that news back in January when it happened. How do people feel about the use of eminent domain in this case?
