A recent article in The New York Times chronicles the daily stressors of living in a City which is constantly in flux. C.J Hughes writes about the loss of views, construction noise and the socio-political climate behind controversial projects such as The Pierhouse Development in Brooklyn. In this instance, construction was halted by local community organizations who feared that the buildings height would take away a valuable public asset: the skyline views from the Brooklyn Promenade.
An interesting read in today’s “construction heavy” New York.
