Developer Aby Rosen, on his strategy following the Upper East Side's cruel rejection of his Lord Norman Foster-designed glass tower at 980 Madison Avenue (right): "We did nothing for four months, we basically rethought and reread all the comments that were ever rendered on all the blog sites, all the articles. I read every blog; I read every article; I read every public transcript written from community board hearings to landmarks to letters of opposition. I read them all. I took it in; I recognized the unreadiness of an area that is a very sensitive area. ? You have 25 cashmere stores. I mean, how many cashmere stores does this Upper East Side need?"
