So the Bronx bombers isn't a good nickname for them, unless you interpret Bombers to mean they destroyed the local economy.Basically, my pulse on how the local community feels is that the Bronx is not the Yankees home. It's just where they play.
Also, how would they design a stadium that isn't a wall along the sidewalk? I guess the only way would be to integrate retail stores, restaurants, or offices so it just looks like any other commercial block? Just have to make sure that these smaller establishments don't have access to the main stadium itself for security reasons.
I get that. but as others have said, the ULI people are advisory only. These comments just make them sound like they're making unnecessary demands and not just looking out for the community. I certainly think there are better ways to convey that they don't want another yankee stadium situation.Classic negotiating technique we all use, which is known as “anchoring”. Start with huge demands — anchor the negotiation well above what you really want — and negotiate down, hopefully to something more than your wish list and BATNA (best alternative to negotiated agreement).
