    Moved away from the City a while ago. When I went back this spring, I was struck by the vacancies on Bleeker. Good to see the Times noticed it.

    I've lived in Boston proper, Manhattan, and the NJ suburbs, so I can offer some opinions on NJ-Mass relationship.

    One of the differences is that some really sought-after, nice suburbs in Boston...

    Point of clarification: that first rendering is of 57th street, not CPS. The CPS (59th) streetscape won't be affected... Maybe you mean you don't like it on the CPS skyline?

    On the positive side, at least it's width-height ratio offsets the overbearing bulk of the GM building and is more aligned with of the pre-war needle towers (Pierre & Sherry)... in that way I think...

    I thought that at first also but it wasn't Manhattan West (unless it's a new design/rendering). We need someone who has the issue handy (it was an ad for a developer possibly... I've already tried...

    This is the crux, in my opinion. For example, if you polled a cross-section of 1,000 New Yorkers (or Americans), showing them photos of the old Penn Station and the new one, and asked them which...

    ^ No doubt. The old arts are pretty much lost. But even among modern designs, I prefer the ones that taper/step back/narrow as they rise (e.g., BofA, 3WTC, Beekman, etc.) as opposed to buildings...

    $3.4 billion for a Station?! That is unfathomable. $100 million for a single transit station sounds like a lot. 34 X 100 million is ridiculous. Even in New York. Even at the WTC.
