Silly_Sot: Ownership is tangled? Have these morons not heard of "quiet title"? The city can initiate John Doe suits against each property.

Silly_Sot: patrick767: How can a city of 139 square miles and once built for 1.8 million people comfortably hold its current 700,000 residents, and must it, in essence, shrink to survive?Well duh. Of course it needs to shrink. Is that even in doubt? The question is how best to do it and how to pay for it.Maybe they can find some threatened plants/animals hiding out in the city and get this organization and others take the land off their hands:Michigan Nature AssociationGradually tear down the buildings over the years and map out a 300 year plan to let it return to nature. In the meantime blocks and blocks of abandoned buildings, some partially or entirely torn down, with the land slowly swallowing them up can be opened as a post-apocalyptic style theme park!It's a NYT story. The idea that a city may need to shrink makes a New Yorker's head assplode. They can't handle the concept.
