Zuccotti Park owners (Brookfield) received nearly $700,000 in 9/11 Government grants meant for Small Business – but the $8 BILLION Brookfield company with 2,500 employees is NOT a small business. Meanwhile, Brookfield was fully insured & compensated for the loss and damages related to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Brookfield was dipping into Taxpayers’ money ($700,000 plus inflation-adjusted accrued interests in a decade) when they clearly were not eligible for the 9/11 Government grants. Yet Brookfield want to evict #OccupyWallStreet protesters? How about the U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara investigating Brookfield’s fraudulent claims as a small business, looting taxpayers at least $700,000 plus interest?
As for Real Estate (R/E) developers urging the City Council & the City Planning Commission to restrict the access of privately-owned Public Park between 1am to 5am every night.
