I see you have gotten some information on Henry Buhl. Here is some more information about him you may want to know.I divided them into 3 sections:1) His involvement in right-wing, anti-immigrant organizations with racist undercurrents.
3) His plan to set up a Business Improvement District is SoHo, which wants to give large, mega real-estate companies control over the neighborhood and away from the block associations that have been in SoHo for decades.2) His donations to the RNC and Republicans with Tea Party credentials.
BACKGROUND:He is from Detroit and he got his money about twenty years ago, at the age of 64, when his father died. Their money is from General Motors, he is an heir to the "Body by Fisher" chassis fortune.Upon inheriting the family fortune, which one magazine in 1995 estimated at $100,000, 000, he quit the financial world. At that time he moved to SoHo.Like all these very wealthy people, once he got the family money, he had this sense of "noblesse oblige" and, let all good millionaires do, set up a charity. That was the SoHo and Tribeca Partnerships, now known as ACE.Now he could be called a philanthropist and let the world think he is a good guy. Yet, most of the money for ACE is not from his pockets, but from the SoHo/Tribeca businesses, residents and coops who contribute to ACE to get their sidewalks cleaned to avoid SDNY fines, yet Buhl gets the credit for being a philanthropist.In fact, he is a right-wing extremist, with DIRECT links to racist, white-supremicist organizations, and is a big contributor to Tea Party favorites.1) His involvement in right-wing, anti-immigrant organizations with racist undercurrents.Buhl is involved with "American Legislative Exchange Council", ALEC, a rightwing poltical lobbying organization. http://www.alec.org/Please google "American Legislative Exchange Council" and "Henry Buhl" and find a link to a post at SourceWatch, under ALEC Exposed that shows this:Henry M. Buhl
Henry M. Buhl, Vice President, Federation for American Immigration Reform.
"Mr. Buhl is the founder of the not-for-profit Association of Community Employment for the Homeless and its three operating companies: SoHo, SoMA, and TriBeCa Partnerships ...
The "SourceWatch" link to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) shows Henry M. Buhl as VP, and states this (emphasis added):
The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) is an "organization of concerned citizens who share a common belief that our nation's immigration policies must be reformed to serve the national interest." FAIR was formed in 1979 by John Tanton, who believed immigration was a significant part of the US population "problem." See RightWeb Profile
FAIR played a significant role in drafting Arizona's controversial SB1070 anti-immigrant law, which has been successfully challenged by the US Department of Justice. According to the FAIR website, "FAIR's legal affiliate, the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) assisted [Arizona] Senator Pearce in drafting the language of SB1070. 
In 2007, the Southern Poverty Law Center branded FAIR a hate group, stating that:
"The founder, chief ideologue and long-time funder of FAIR [John Tanton] is a racist. Key staff members have ties to white supremacist groups, some are members, and some have spoken at hate group functions. FAIR has accepted more than $1 million from a racist foundation devoted to studies of race and IQ, and to eugenics - the pseudo-science of breeding a better human race that was utterly discredited by the Nazi euthanasia program. It spreads racist conspiracy theories."Buhl's relationship with FAIR, an anti-immigration group, founded by white supremicist John Tranton, is revealed here in alecexposed.comBuhl founded the anti-immigrant Coalition for a Secure Driver's License and hosted many fundraisers and meetings for it in his Prince Street loft.2) His donations to the RNC and Republicans with Tea Party credentials.From http://fundrace.huffingtonpost.com/neighbors.php?type=name&oldest=1&lname=buhl&fname=henry&search=Search+NamesCheck out how Buhl spends his inheritance.

Hunter introduced legislation calling for the construction of a reinforced fence along the entire U.S.-Mexico border,
Hunter introduced H.R. 552, The Right to Life Act, on February 2, 2005. The purpose of the bill is to "implement equal protection... for the right to life of each born and preborn human person." In the 109th Congress, the legislation collected 101 cosponsors. Hunter states that The Right to Life Act "would legally define “personhood” as the moment of conception and, therefore, guarantee all constitutional rights and protections, including life, to the unborn without utilizing a constitutional amendment."

3) His plan to set up a Business Improvement District (BID) in SoHo, which wants to give large, mega real-estate companies control over the neighborhood and away from the block associations that have been in SoHo for decades.Buhl is 83 and is worried that when he dies his children have no interest in continuing their father's pet project ACE. So, in an attempt to preserve his legacy, he teamed up with mega real-estate companies like Newmark, Knight and Frank (14 million sq/ft of holdings worldwide), Thor Equities (the guys destroying Coney Island), Aurora Capital, and PEP Realty (a local real estate company with connections to organized crime - before founding PEP, the principals were in the local commercial garbage business racket in SoHo, until Giuliani shut them down)Buhl brought these guys together in 2010 to form the BID. The SoHo artists and pioneers are fighting it. The community board unanimously vetoed it. Assemblymember Deborah Glick and State Senator Daniel Squadron have come out against it, as does most of SoHo.So, Buhl is using ACE to set up this BID, a commercial operation that no one in SoHo wants except the landlords and his legacy1) It was Buhl who brought the landlords together.2) The BID is working out of ACE's offices on Bdwy, although ACE is a 501c-3 non profit.3) The director of the BID, Mary Balaban, an upper east side socialite, used to be ACE's ExecutiveDirector.http://www.newyorksocialdiary.com/node/65991Read more about this hostile corporate takeover and how the artists are fighting itNote from Suzannah: article from little local corrupt rag occasionally does an honest piece- removed link --go to google and look for stories -- they are there.Note from Suzannah -- Henry Buhl does get around....look here.
