Renovations by Vornado Realty to the Manufacturers Hanover Trust building were brought back into the spotlight Wednesday after a New York Times article quoted an email exchange between a former Landmarks commissioner Meredith Kane and Landmarks staff. Kane is now legal counsel for Vornado. The article was mentioned during court proceedings before State Supreme Court Justice Lucy Billings. Last Friday in court, Maria T. Vullo, Vornado’s rep, suggested that a request for more correspondence between Vornado and Landmarks was akin to a “fishing expedition.” She added that all correspondence pertinent to the case had already been provided to Michael Gruen. the lawyer representing the petitioners in the case, the Citizens Emergency Committee to Preserve Preservation (CECPP).
