Duffield TV: What about UNDERGROUND do you not understand?

Freddy's Brooklyn Roundhouse has complete video coverage of the recent press conference. A new elected official— Hakeem Jeffries, the Assembly representative for the area, joined the long-time Duffield advocates. The video catches some great quotes by Jeffries, including:
The City will say the evidence connecting the properties to the underground railroad are inconclusive. It was called the Underground Railroad and not the above-ground railroad for a reason. It was illegal in the 1800s to assist runaway slaves. So it's outrageous for us to expect that there are going to be documents that say we are breaking the law with the Underground Railroad.
