There was enough NIMBY opposition to stop a grocery store from coming to Point Breeze. Some people fear and oppose all things that could be a sign of gentrification. It's not the same as a stadium, which has other concerns, but there will be at least some people fighting what most of us on this board would easily call progress or a good developement in a low income neighborhood.
