Zoning, the Graphic Novel

New, 4 comments

The City Planning Commission has figured out a way to explain its incomprehensible zoning code to the layman: cartoons! The Times has a preview of a new 168-page handbook, out Monday, which features "admirably lucid prose" and adorable illustrations of what each zoning designation allows. It also features pictures of buildings (like Richard Meier's On Prospect Park) as examples of what's permitted. Michel Gondry has already optioned the film rights. [NYT]
