New Point of Law column: "The Time We Saved the City"



Our latest featured column is a bit different than most. It offers a firsthand account of the role played by, well, slightly creative public lawyering at one of the most crucial junctures in the history of New York City's governance, the fiscal crisis of 1975. Former federal tax official (and friend of this site) Alvin Lurie was at the center of the events he describes, and some of the details he recalls here have to the best of his knowledge never appeared in print until today's Point of Law exclusive (bumped 12:15 p.m.).
