    To allow the street wall to be broken on the side streets is one thing. But to allow it on the avenues is beyond stupid.

    Now they're getting into the heart of the garment district.

    Oh wow. It's one of those L-shaped monsters like the one on Maiden Lane downtown. I did NOT see that coming.

    sorry for the bad picture quality due to cellphone camera and glare.

    As you can see despite the quality issues, this is quite a ridiculous setback.

    DeBlasio is not a friend of New York architecture, or of most New Yorkers. He is a friend primarily of encouraging and increasing poverty - which typically does not lead to great architecture ... or great quality of life for everybody else.

    The man has an agenda, and neither the city's built environment nor its residents (for the most part) are beneficiaries.
