Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer offered his opinion on the Chelsea Market Expansion plan yesterday, explaining that he would probably recommend that the City Council veto the plan unless it is redrawn and significantly scaled back. Not unlike a scenario that was proposed over at ArchiTakes earlier this month, Stringer told The New York Times that he thinks developer Jamestown Properties should abandon the 10th Avenue expansion and increase the size of the Ninth Avenue one. The primary critique of the proposed Chelsea Market Expansion up to this point is that the 10th Avenue addition would crowd the High Line and cover a section of the elevated park in shadows.
