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.
