I need to workout my English, and not to forget the specificity of NY, that it reinvent itself faster than any other place. Simply put, I was trying to describe that Hudson Yards was bad by design, but as you mentioned the city will grow upon it as it did everywhere else. You're right about the fact that whatever the toxicity of real-estate speculation, it is unethical and an environnemental disaster, it will usually have good press even in specialized magazines. It might come from conflict of interest, or old-fashionned faith in the Bilbao effect. However, I wasn't surprised by the campaign against Hudson Yard, I should have if it is indeed the first to happen on your side. In Europe docks are turning into luxury homes since late 90's, and I guess critics began to interest mainstream media when foreign investor joined the game.
