"Members of Community Board 3 voted unanimously Monday night to oppose plans for an outdoor plaza at the new 51 Astor Place because of questions about whether the design provides enough space for the public and fits aesthetically with the surrounding neighborhood."

Really? When did this change of heart happen? The monstrous building fits aesthetically with the neighborhood, but the outdoor plaza is not? That can't be CB3's real reasoning...
