  1. more nyc history being demolished for out of context glass boxes built with non union labor picked up off the street
    way to go for the multi millionaire greedy developers

  2. These buildings would appear to have no architectural significance and represent a great underutilization for this prime location. Clearly, the developer is planning a high-rise with union or prevailing wages more than likely. Not sure why such staunch opposition…the city will benefit from the eventual tax dollars
