No one ever expects it to actually happen.
Will go here:
Twin 30-story towers right in the middle of a block of 1920's single family detached houses, across the street from a major park. No, it's not the first high-rise in the neighborhood (there are several other 30 story condo towers within a half-mile), but you never expect one to just sprout up in the middle of a single family block. You don't expect to be able to look out your bedroom window onto concrete trucks and cranes.
Personally, I think it's unimaginably awesome, although it will block my view of downtown, which is about 2.5 miles away. Also: no more nude sunbathing.
This is how the lot appeared in December, when they first started clearing the land and preparing to dig the foundations:

I say continue with your nude sunbathing. They can move their phallic symbols elsewhere.

The sound of the construction is gonna suck for you... I too say, continue with your nude sunbathing, the yuppies in those condos are gonna be too busy counting their money to watch you!!

ian: it is your duty to post photographs of yourself sunbathing nude while you still have the chance.

that's a great example of generic 00's architecture. toronto is full of condo towers exactly like that, particularly out in the suburbs. they're all gonna look real dated 20 years from now.

We're thinking about moving to a different neighborhood once we have a real income.

Peter, the new arena will be for the New Jersey (soon to be Brookyln?) Nets, not the Knicks. I live in Fort Greene, about 300 yards from the Atlantic Yards and I can think of nothing worse to do with that land than what Ratner has proposed. Boo Ratner!!! Boo!!!
