New York: The nation’s most energy efficient city?GreenBiz, June 18, 2013
When New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg leaves office in January, green building advocates lose a strong ally. But they are determined to make sure his shoes are filled to their liking.
To that end, a coalition of environmental and real estate interests are asking candidates to endorse their plan, “Green Building Roadmap for NYC’s Next Mayor,” which offers steps to further the city’s energy efficiency efforts.
Those unfamiliar with Bloomberg’s agenda may be surprised to hear the term “green” ascribed to New York City. After all, “soot” is what Elizabeth Gilbert came up with in the movie “Eat, Pray, Love” when asked by a group of Italians for a word that embodies New York.
