Comment of the Day

"The plans presented are impressive. But the theme has morphed from the original plans worked on for years, which had achieved much consensus. The original scope was pedestrian-friendly thoroughfares, traffic calming and safety measures, and park improvements. The park itself was always intended to be a destination place. Now the entire scope of the plan is a destination place. While gorgeous, this extreme alteration in function is at complete odds with years of agreement in the community."?gigi [Huge Astor Place and Cooper Square Transformation Revealed]
