Next City Discusses How The Lincoln Yards Project Affect The Hideout

Next City‘s M. Sophia Newman discusses how will the TIF-fueled Lincoln Yards project affect The Hideout. If you haven’t yet heard, in May 2018, the Sterling Bay development corporation moved to re-build an area of the city called Lincoln Yards. The whole project is projected to cost about $6 billion. This project directly threatens The Hideout, which sits on the Lincoln Yards area.
“Public opposition has been rapid, widespread, and multifaceted,” wrote Newman. “In the midst of the fight are the Hideout owners, embracing a new role as political organizers.”
