An award-winning news site covering the East Village of NYC
looks less and less like a village and looking more like disney land
but the people who lived in the demolished building were offered very low cost apts in the new building.Its looked like Disneyland down there for a number of years now. Do you people insist on Whole Foods and then bitch about the building that its in?
As much as I hate the destruction of the neighborhood, it's hard to take signs like that seriously. Projects like this GENERATE taxes off the yuppies that allow people like those to continue to live in low-mid income housing, enjoy community gardens and benefit from other government welfare programs. I relate to that punk rock sensibility, but it's unintelligent signs like these that ruin the more valuable reasons not to tear down historic buildings and put up modern monstrosities.
