Somebody said Hammond has a fuckbuddy or partner on the board.
Why is he a crook?
Why do you think he's a crook, OP?
Please explain, OP.
From reading High Line threads at DL for the past few years, the blighted remains of a rail line have been turned into a beautiful park and major tourist attraction. Until now, the threads haven't mentioned a "crook in charge."
How is he a crook?
He personally fought and crawled through the barbed wire of city bureaucracy for YEARS to get the thing built.
A 500k compensation package is a pittance considering that the High Line has directly brought billions of dollars in real-estate development and revenue to the city and businesses in that neighborhood, and therefore jobs. And it will bring billions more to copycat projects worldwide.
Now let's hear the fuckbuddy gossip.
I'm not sure if he's a crook and I'm curious as to why OP asserts that...
One thing that's always bothered me about the promotion of Hammond is the fact that it's rarely mentioned that he was college roommates with Gifford Miller who was the Speaker of the New York City Council. I'd imagine it's relatively easier to get something of this magnitude off the ground when your best friend is running the City legislature.
Unrelated... isn't Hammond gay? Who's he with and who's had him?
