    Pity the poor soul who might live across the street and have to look at that.

    I agree. Where are all of the "talented" New Yorkers who are so worried about a shi**y specimen of failed urban redevelopment in Greenwich Village getting a few new buildings where there is now thing?

    Why don't they seem to care about any of the instances of actual architectural destruction in the city? Why doesn't truly bad architecture worry them? Why do they care so much about what we know will be fairly expensively designed buildings replacing inactive grass tufts when they live near them, yet they don't view this atrocity or any of the other budget hotels scarring the Garment District, Financial District, Chinatown, and elsewhere as part of "the destruction of New York" that they are so worried about?

    The non-working, self-styled "intelligentsia" creeps who are distracting the city's architecture critics and media from the real destruction of New York with their mawkish squeals about anything that dare change even the crappier aspects of Greenwich Village are truly one of the more useless, counterproductive and selfish layers of society.

    I don't think residents of this city think as a collective whole. Most only care about their neighborhood/community.
    Hardly anyone lives in the garment district and I doubt the people working there care about what happens to its buildings. Still, it would be nice if the architecture community took notice...

    Sadly, architecture is not a serious issue to most Americans.

    Kaufman / Poon / O'Hara spawn, balled up and waiting until activated by the Mother Ship to wreak further destruction upon Manhattan.

    It's not even finished yet and it's already falling apart. As a Russian saying goes, "the stingy pay twice".
