Description

According to the article, "On April 29, 1997, a group of well-heeled developers, land-use lawyers, architects, and lobbyists gathered at the New Asia Restaurant in Chinatown. They had coughed up as much as $2,500 a table, which is about the going rate for a major political fundraiser. But this time the influential crowd had not come to support a candidate for mayor or to rub elbows with a powerful politician. The object of everyone's attention was a group of low-profile bureaucrats: the staff of the city Planning Department."
