The owners of older, not-so-luxury buildings along 57th Street are starting to renovate their properties in preparation for the influx of richer folk who will come to One57, the Park Hyatt, the Willow Hotel, and other new buildings going up on the street. The Post discusses one of those renovations, to 57 West 57th Street, today, and it got us thinking of all of the new projects coming to 57th Street. So we put 'em on one big map, for a new feature we're calling Microhood Maps. (We stretched the microhood to East 57th Street for the sake of completeness.) Have another microhood where we should map redevelopment? Let us know.
