NYC gives the finger to hip hop-hating, rackrenting, profiteering property speculators!

Looks like 1520 Sedgwick over in the Bronx – putative home of hip hop – has won itself a stay after local authorities in New York blocked a speculative sale of the building… 🙂

1520 is not just a significant historical location, it’s also home to many working class Noo Yoikers under the Mitchell-Lama affordable housing programme, so it’s also something of a spanner in the works for the profiteers and gentrifiers.

As Kool Herc himself says:

It’s not just about 1520, it’s about all affordable housing. Every family needs a piece of the American dream.
