Walk This Way with Amanda Burden

New, 17 comments

The public hearing on the 141-block rezoning of the East Village and Lower East Side is next week, so the Daily News went on a walking tour of the area with Amanda Burden, city planning commish: "Armed with a tape measure, sunglasses and comfortable yet stylish shoes (she is, after all, a former socialite), the planning commissioner eyes building heights, studies the flow of people and contemplates how an area's past relates to its present and future ... 'I don't mind a building that is in context with the others, meaning the same height with architectural guidelines, but small streets shouldn't have large development.' And they even got her to do the crossed-arms pose! [NYDN]
