It's official: the public can't get enough of the Hudson Yards! Either that, or they just love slideshows. Atlantic Yards Report's Norman Oder was at Cooper Union last night for the public presentation of the Yards proposals by the competing developers, and he says that the Great Hall was standing room only. Over one thousand people lined up to hear landscape architects talk? Yardsmania! Writes Oder, "Each of the design teams last night acknowledged that the buildings, and the architects behind them, might change, but the strength in each project starts with the designs—and they differ." Indeed they do. Oder then goes on to fulfill the AYR's raison d'être, comparing the Hudson Yards to the Atlantic Yards and thoughtfully deconstructing everything Ratner.
