    Thanks for the info, Lofter. This sucks. I wish that the stretch of B'Way in the high 20s would get more hotels. There are around 4 parcels of crap amidst some utterly spectacular buildings. This...

    Thanks, Lofter.

    Do you know where the proposed mid-block hotel will rise? 28th Street has a lot of nice old buildings. Hopefully, nothing nice will not be razed.

    Is Cetra Ruddy the architect?...

    This is like 400 Park Ave. So. and like the Horizen condo on 23rd. Something will rise on all sites, but it likely won't be as nice as what had been proposed.

    I wonder what's going on with that project. The stores were emptied a long time ago, but cars still park in the garage. I hope that that black monstrosity is razed soon. It's horrible.

    Fabrizio,

    You are truly obnoxious. Who do you think you are addressing me in such a condescending and rude manner? Perhaps you should consider etiquette lessons. I suspect that I have every...

    Why do you speculate that they won't move to outer boroughs. Look at what happened with the fish market going to Hunt's Point. Also, in the NY Times Business section on February 5th, there's an...
  8. I'm not even remotely missing your point, I just...

    I'm not even remotely missing your point, I just completely disagree with it. Manhattan between Wall Street and 96th Street is quite a small part of NYC. The outer boroughs don't have a lot of...

    Things are not as black and white as you think. Nice things don't have to be chains. In addition to living in the city, I have a house in Scarsdale, and in Scarsdale Village, which is beautiful and...

    Stern,

    Nice stores are not bad. Cheap stores certainly have a value, and they also have a place. New York is not just Manhattan. It's Queens, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island too. Just...

    London and Paris are pristine. I lived in London for several years, and I have been to Paris many, many times. I know them well.

    Moreover, you have missed many of my posts. I utterly lament the...
  12. I disagree. London and Paris are pristine, and...

    I disagree. London and Paris are pristine, and yet, they are not white-washed, computer redered cities. U.S. cities experienced serious declines in the 60's, 70's and early 80's, and certain...

    It's not nice, but at least it's clean and well kept. Look at how filthy and run down the buildings just north of the new condo are. Only in NY can you sell $1.5m 2 bedrooms in a building that's...

    I think that it's a shame that the sh.it on the rest of this block on 6th Ave. wasn't included in this project. Those buildings are so run down.

    Is anyone else familiar with this plot? The 6th Ave. portion is tiny!

    I agree with you. I also like how the facade is curved in certain places which contrasts nicely with sharp edges elsewhere.

    The Sixth Ave. foot print is tiny. It seems like two old (and very...

    True. But this will be a much cheaper building and won't have $30M+ apartments. Therefore, I expect more illusion than reality with respect to complicated engineering.
  18. It reminds me a little of Calatrava's tower.
