Like all New Yorkers of a certain age who are mildly obsessed with urban planning and real estate, we spend a lot of time curled up by the fireplace with Curbed. What's more, the city's premiere site for snarky commentary on the business of building has been a great resource for information about the rail yards redevelopment process so far. So it was nice to see that they shouted us out today.
But hey, Curbed - who said anything about getting scorned? Though it's true that we're living in an era of problematic large-scale projects, there's still time to be optimistic that the process will be more open and transparent, and productive, than those other yards. Let's not get ahead of ourselves with the doomsaying.
