    Two points:

    1. Horrible, ugly, tacky; everything that's wrong with suburbia.

    2. Moderators: this should go in the New York Metro sub-forum

    3. Welcome to the board, Nick Mango. If you think you can keep people updated on Long Island development, your info and pictures would be much appreciated; however, you should start a LI Development thread over in the "New York Metro" sub-forum.

    My favorite part of the project is that even though it is located in the town of Babylon - my town (Huntington) is going to get stuck with the bill for the infrastructure improvements related to it - because its our roads leading in... thanks Babylon!

    Though in fairness - at least the town told Huntington about the project so the improvements could be prepared. Unlike Smithtown, which changed its zoning laws to allow a giant retail park of big box stores literally on the border of the two towns, but neglected to tell anyone about it until it was too late to formally object. Now THAT is going to make this seem like the taj mahal... ouch.

    Hey nick, by the way, I wasn't calling your pictures horrible, just the building itself. These are some pretty good pics. Thanks, and please post again!

    Styrofoam "architecture." It's how Suburbia is done. These buildings are built to last thirty years. After that, fashions change.

    (I do my share.)

    Lofter can keep you well supplied in material. He seems to have a thing for it.

    I do happen to know where there is a stash or two

    But this stuff at Da Arches is a grade above.

    Nick: Are the various design elements of the complex (arches, quoins, pediments, etc.) completely pre-built, or do they construct them on site using basic materials?
