Last night, the Planning and Zoning Commission rejected Kogan’s plans, and not only rejected them, but rejected them rather cruelly: “I am delighted,” said Greenwich resident Charles Lee after the proposal was rejected. “I think we’ll have a block party.” Some went so far as to suggest Kogan’s desires were subnormal:
Commission Chairman Donald Heller also questioned some of the features, such as bathrooms with multiple stalls and the public versus private space. “It raises the question as to whether this is a normal single-family house,” he said.
Wow, Judgey McJudgealot. We don’t know about you, but we really thought Americans were past this kind of blatant sizeism. We really hope that Kogan does the right thing and uses his influence to form an activist group for billionaires whose homes are considered “too large” in order to combat more of these grotesque injustices from occurring. It could be called: Valery’s Vision. Godspeed, man.
