NYT: New York City, Tear Down These Walls


2 of 5 stars
What’s this?

Times architecture critic Nicolai Ourousoff on removing eyesores from the city’s skylines. “True, the city is close to broke. But even with Wall Street types contemplating the end and construction of new luxury towers grinding to a halt, why give in to despair? Instead of crying over what can’t be built, why not refocus our energies on knocking down the structures that not only fail to bring us joy, but actually bring us down?”
