"This ranks up there with allowing the Singer Building to be demolished as one of the dumbest decisions ever made in the history of NYC's urban landscape. While the LPC goes around giving its stamp of approval to garbage like this, 1 Chase Manhattan and 510 Fifth/Manufacturers Trust Co., Macklowe is getting ready to tear down beautiful 19th-century townhouses after liquidating the Drake, tracts of brownstone Harlem are being ripped down for crappy condos and NYU is hollowing out pre-war (as in Civil) churches like St Ann's for its craptastic generic high-rise dorms."
