The newly named Hudson Yards section of Manhattan, located in the current no-man’s-land in the West 30s, is set to be transformed into a thriving commercial and residential hub, featuring more than 13 million square feet of development over a 26-acre site. Mayor Bloomberg sent out a press release saying that over the next five years the Hudson Yards project will create 23,000 jobs alone and “its existence will support thousands more and is a testament to our city’s economic strength.” Which is great, and all. Except I’ll never be able to afford to live there. And neither will you. And turning New York into Dubai just means the city gets a little bit cleaner and a little bit duller. Above is the proposed view from Hoboken, below is the view from Chelsea. Yuck.
