    Well, my last post on here was probably more than 5 years ago, when I was a young and impressionable man. Password still works.

    The demolition of the Drake was a tragedy that I took very hard....

    Say what you will about Chinese cheap labor, but if it were due to their labor that something like this can adorn cities in the West, then God bless the Chinese. I have a newfound respect for Ralph,...

    Looks a bit like those new "brownstones" that went up on 119th Street in Harlem recently, I believe.

    These types of things are getting a little bit ridiculous. I think in this day and age we should get rid of the taboo of discussing these things in a racial context and address parenting problems in...

    Is 400 Park to be built atop the parking lot at the Southwest corner of 28th and Park?

    I also phrased the above post wrong: I meant to imply that the Drake hotel site is of a similar disgusting...

    This area of Manhattan is probably one of the most modern in the entire city, and surprisingly works by nature of its density. I would not say the same for most other experiments in urban modernism...

    What's up with the garage in the back? It's awful, though I do know it is attached to a nice Art Deco gem. What's the dating on it?

    I have disagreements with the politics of many members. Thanks!

    I'd love to be able to buy the scrap from those gorgeous Parisian homes. I don't see why the developer couldn't have used them. They'd look great, and the building would sell just as many units.

    South Park Slope

    Hi. I'm thinking of moving from beautiful Astoria, where I am now because of its European low-key, quasi-suburban feel, for a completely different environment in South Park slope, around Fourth...

    I tend to judge things on the basis of the net gain over the previous structure, but out of curiosity, two questions: what's so bad about the fenestration? I am completely objective, and just...

    A nice combination of buildings. With the addition of 99 Church this should be rather attractive. I do look forward to more thin, hyper modern structures to go up in the vicinity, ala Coruscant.

    ^^ You're alone on that sentiment, chief.

    It is barbarous. Hardly any other Western city in the world would see to the demolition of a building of its caliber in favor of a building of identical...

    So, I must ask, as I never knew: were the buildings that were here before worthily replaced?

    It's great to finally see something happening on this longstanding patch of dirt! Too bad the final design isn't too incredibly nice, but it should bring some life to that corner. Count down till the...

    I can't even bear to look at the weather forecast. Rain for as far as they can predict. This is unbearable.

    The real facade (or the 58th street facade) of the Hard Rock building seems to be very intricate and detailed, with rather nice ornamentation. Or am I wrong?

    Very sad to see them go. This area of 57th Street has become / is becoming unrecognizable.

    It won't stop raining in this city.

    It appears that this whole month is going to be rife with rain. What's the deal with this? I just need empathy.

    This is the type of building that inspires and uplifts the people, and engenders both civic and national pride.
