Goodness knows, I would. But I personally suspect, a large percentage of those people, particularly the ones in the single family homes along JFK Blvd, who have lived there for many years, will see this whole thing as the single most distasteful, disruptive, repulsive event in their lives, since 9/11.
If that's the case, they're idiots. The real estate market is non-existent in the U.S. now, and it's going to get worse. By the looks of the surrounding area, it would be idiotic to turn down the chance for 100,000 people to bring in tax revenue.
For those that absolutely hate it: they can stay at a relative's for the week and rent their place out. A free house payment. I can't imagine any American short of the 1% that would want that deal. They could race farting rhinos in my front yard for a week if it meant being able to pay the Citicorp vampires their monthly blood.
There's a *lot* of empty looking condos around there, I'd much rather sleep on an inflatable mattress in one of those than a Motel 6 - and I'm pretty sure the people stuck with those probably are hoping they can hang on long enough to see this happen. Or at least the banks that probably own the lot; there's a lot of "assets" being held these days that are just empty buildings.
The place has character, love the concrete walls, the view, the run along the cliff, ACTUAL TREES, *turns that happened naturally and were not "designed" by Tilke*, etc. etc.
