IF YOU HATE CHANGE MOVE TO THE MIDWEST!

“When you look at the renderings and what the finished product is going to look like, I think it’s wonderful. NYC is all about evolution, it’s all about re-inventing itself and my whole thing is…get on the bandwagon. If you really don’t like change then go to the midwest somewhere where communities– you could go there a hundred years later and it still looks the same.” – A New Yorker for Change

It Doesn’t Match

Sunday, November 16th, 2008

“I like being able to, in the spring or the summer, one of the things I like doing the most is walking from Fort Greene or Clinton Hill all the way to the other side to Crown Heights, Prospect Heights, Park Slope. To see the beautiful architecture and the design and to see the way in which each neighborhood sort of blends into the next into the next….And I just see the development that is happening all over Brooklyn, that it doesn’t match the beauty that already exists. And I just wonder in fifty years if America is going to be able to see the wonder and the beauty of what we created, instead of this cardboard cut-out bullshit that is passed off for living. So am I a fan of the arena? No.” – Former Fort Greene Resident
