Looking back, looking ahead

Max Touhey

Welcome to Friday Open Threads, wherein we’ll pass the mic to readers to speak up about topics of interest, distress, horror, etc. Have something you want discussed? Let us know.

There are just a few days left in 2018, and as we barrel toward the end of the year, we’ve been looking back at the biggest things that happened in New York City over the past 12 months: the biggest real estate deals, the best architecture, and the like.

But we’re also thinking ahead to 2019, which promises to be interesting: Many of the same issues that have dominated this past year—the broken transit system, affordable housing—will remain prominent in the next one. Hudson Yards will debut. Amazon’s HQ2 will continue to be a topic of conversation. And the L train shutdown begins in just four months.

While it’s all well and good to think about what will happen in the future, we want to know: what do you, Curbed readers, want to happen in NYC in 2019? If you could make a list—no matter how pie-in-the-sky—of things you’d like to see happen in the city in the new year, what would be on it? More affordable housing? Fewer supertall skyscrapers? A subway system that isn’t a crumbling mess? No idea is too big or too small—we want to hear ‘em all.
