    I think I am most excited by the expansion north of the waterfront park. The buildings seems more of the same massive street vibe killing design that high rises in LIC have but at least Vernon has...

    Sidewalk grates for ventilation where not really an option here since the tunnels are deeper.

    But they definitely could do a better job of hiding how ugly they are/will be.

    With new construction over at the Hudson Yards, any office development in LIC would just sit empty.

    I find it amazing that out of all of the issues that afflict the City of New York a newly elected mayor would seek to make this his first big initiative.
