    I like how the tower looks standing by itself. Here is the now-gone view across the Bank of America site:



    I'd suppord infill to the west of the tower, but no taller than the Knickerbocker. besides, any infill is going to require demolition of the gritty yet unique 42nd Street Bazaar.

    Fantastic news ^

    Hopefully the new plaza will be user-friendly -- unlike the existing POS.

    At one point the ground floor was a place where you could pay your phone bill / set up service orders.

    no additional air rights as 1095 is built out and Durst used some for One Bryant Park. Equity wouldnt want to add to in anyway, they have over a million square feet empty when Verizon completly moved out by fall

    There is a large banner outside the flea market that says they are closing 9/8/2006. Is this a sign of something to come?

    All these folks will have to go elsewhere

    And hopefully we'll get a new building.

    I hope it is. The wait has been too long.

    Awesome. Between this news and the release of the new WTC renderings, today has been damn good!

    I like the short crappy lowrises on 42nd. They add dimension to the streetscape and you could buy quite a bit of interesting merchandise in them, such as a fake ID, a bong or a cap that says "**** Off!" across the front.

    The 42nd street flea market is GONE!!!!
