Another great development for New York. Hopefully this part of the skyline will develop some more so the Hudson turns into a real canyon.

It's just a preference, for which I know what I am talking about.

Won't happen because jersey is a different state and wants a piece of the skyscraper pie.

People from outside don't care, don't you get that? Do out of towers care that Miami beach is not Miami? Do they not say Miami when they talk about south beach? It may be wrong, but that is how it goes. JC is a different state, but to most outsiders it is adjacent to NYC and basically a part of that city in some way even if they are aware that they are different jurisdictions. It is like when people refer to the Virginia and Maryland suburbs around Washington as Dc. It may be annoying to locals, but that is how humans seem to operate.

People just like to generalize and people from out of town are not interested in details like that.

Its nothing to do with any pie. Except for this forum no one cares that much about skyscrapers and etc. The one and only reason why JC is having this kind of development is because NYC is filled to the brim with everything. There is virtually no space to build there anything with big footprint. besides NIMBYs are way too powerful and unions make any project twice as expensive as somewhere else. So naturally developers look around and see Queens, Brooklyn and NJ Gold coast.

I do not agree on that. From a planning perspective is a good thing to densify around transit stations leading to the central city. This is what many city's in the world are planning, and I would love to see more densification projects around MTA stations/PATH station in the NYC area. This makes the city as a whole a better, more efficient, machine.

I know too, but I think the Jersey City skyline is a cool addition on the other Hudson side.

There's densification near all the PATH stations in NJ. Not just JSQ. Newport is where it is because of the PATH station. There is also significant densification around Exchange Place, Grove Street, Harrison, Hoboken, and Newark (which was already pretty dense). The only issue is whether the PATH handle carry the extra riders.

Depends on where you are. It should be visible from anywhere along the West Side Highway, and a few parts of Lower Manhattan as well.
