    NAG is bs. Ambassadors to developers. They encourage growth without understanding its impact. The neighborhood had the ability to grow twice its size on its own, had the ability to produce twice as much garbage on its own, prior to the upzonings. Work for the City, the EPA, the DEC if you want to make a difference.
