Council Reaffirms Vote Blocking Armory Mall Plan

The City Council yesterday voted 48 to 1 with one abstention to override the mayor's veto of their vote last week to reject the Related Companies proposal to redevelop the Kingsbridge Armory into a shopping mall. Three additional Council members showed up to add their voices to oppose the mayor. We need to check this, but presumably only outgoing Council Member Maria Baez, who is reportedly in ill health, did not show up to vote. In the Times story today, G. Oliver Koppell, who appeared to be headed toward voting with the mayor on the earlier vote, had some harsh words for Mr. Bloomberg.

"There is only one administration and one mayor to blame,” Koppell said to applause from his colleagues.
