NY Post - Sitt willing to share

Excerpt -

I'm the guy who controls this - it's my sandbox," said Joe Sitt, even as the City Council's land use committee green-lighted the mayor's plan.

The city's plan - which includes building a new 9.39-acre outdoor park within a 27-acre amusement and entertainment district - will head to the full council for a final approval next week.

It is expected to pass provided an agreement can be reached between the city and Sitt, who owns 10.5 of the acres needed.

Sitt said he's willing "to share my sandbox with my friend Mayor Mike," but the city doesn't believe Sitt is qualified to develop the new playland and wants to buy him out so they could choose their own developer.
