Mayor de Blasio’s allies call for shelving $150 million allotted for Fifth Ave. library renovations

“Some of Mayor de Blasio’s closest allies — including Susan Sarandon and the Rev. Al Sharpton — are asking City Hall to kill $150 million in capital funding for renovations on the New York Public Library’s Fifth Ave. main branch. The advocates want de Blasio to reallocate that money toward struggling branch libraries.

“Taking money away from branch libraries to subsidize NYPL’s real estate plans will hurt students, seniors, immigrants (and) job seekers,” the coalition wrote in a letter to de Blasio.” (via NY Daily News)
