** The Admirals Row National Environmental Policy Act Environmental Assessment is the wimpy version that will rubber stamp the National Historic Preservation Act 106 Process findings which were compromised also using an environmental assessment which will guarantee the demolition of Admirals Row.  The Environmental Impact Statement will allow Admirals Row to be reviewed anew, with possible landmarking.
