    We are obviously not talking about the same things. You are talking about RULES that allow whatever the RULES allow and I am talking about the quality of life for a particular neighborhood. You...

    I came across an article about how the abutters to Gehry were up in arms because of five years of construction, including about six months of pile driving which alone can destroy anyone. These...

    I'm glad you're so brave when anything I might say is censored. I think you guys are the SAME guys posting forever in the same way about buildings. You resent other input and censor it, declaring...

    I don't think this is bullshit at all. There has been a 20 +year old fight over Millstein's attempt to build a tower on Pearl. You merely represent one view and want to be deaf dumb and blind...

    Poll: Zip

    I have hunted in vain for even one picture of any real views of the tanning and printing buildings you so loved (no one else seems to have loved them, ever). I can't remember them and I assume they...

    Hardly a soap box. I just read that the kids coming to the school were from overflow in Tribeca, not downtown at all, which is what I've been saying. Also, the school seems maybe even for k-third...

    I read first the intro to your post, zip, and it was more of the same in-crowd being wonderful to one another, and then you came on, laughably, you are complete, I am not complete, your family was...

    I'm not sure what you mean about no comparison. I've certainly been there enough over the same amount of time, and you might be romanticizing a neighborhood (taken by Southbridge) that you never saw...

    I'll address the holes in the ground theme running around the board, it is everywhere so this is a good a place as any. The commercial real estate market clearly has been a vehicle in a monster scam...

    I think you also need maybe a rendering of the real urban experience. I was at Southbridge during 9/11 trying to get my 90-year-old disabled mother out of there as literally hundreds of thousands of...

    Not sure what you mean but two points. First, I saw a distant rendering of the building a few pages back (and it seemed insanely tall) and thought it was glass (with all the reflection), didn't...

    Southbridge really was filled with genuine New Yorkers and urban types, not faux suburbia looking for a different mall experience in the city. Southbridge was crap but then this is all these people...

    This is exactly what you don't understand, the manufacturing went away, poof, gone, the buildings were used and used up, abandoned, there was nothing to recycle them into. If anyone got a look at...

    I'm no authority but I assume the buildings around Southbridge were falling apart and toxic and becoming abandoned. Printing and tanning simply died as industries in NYC (like so many industries)...

    You're raising many issues. I'll try to deal with them but understand I'm also trying to reflect the feelings I've encountered among Southbridge tenants over the years, feelings which I'm trying to...

    I'll go much further. Building mass was a huge problem going back at least to the Equity Building. Now buildings are much much bigger -- and because they are GLASS they are supposed to miraculously...

    Poll: more spleen -- not in a good mood

    That's not true, obviously. The entire Seaport area is zoned low-rise and obviously the battle over the many proposed office towers on Pearl and Peck -- where sunlight has been used to block...

    I don't think that's true, Zippy. The sun sets in the West (last I noticed) and I've seen it go down behind the big Jersey clock over the Hudson -- this in the summer when it's around the longest. ...

    The sarcasm around here is of true believers, so it's not worth addressing at all. About the new affordable housing? God, how many units for how much and let me die laughing. Southbridge is...

    The picture of the rising Gerhry weirdly looming over Southbridge Towers reminds me what it would be like to live there now (my mother lived there for 30 years), the sun blotted out completely and...
