from an anonymous commenter to yesterday's post:
"What in their right mind recommends (aka facilitates) a potential 8-story bldg. on a narrow side street like 40th or 41st St. that would also block the view from the park? Only possible explanation: A behind-the-scenes property owner(s) with plans to build such a monstrosity & the connections to manipulate the planning process. If there's another explanation, we want to hear it & you can post it here."
Update: One answer, from lostingreenwoodheights:
"8 story buildings are not allowed on the side streets. Do your research before spreading false info. Higher density R6A and R7A is only for 4ht Ave and 7th Ave. Lower density "contextual zoning" (a matter of opinion) is R6B on the side streets."
