Did you really ban my boyfriend for not knowing what phase 2 of Hudson Yards was? I recommended this site because this is a cool place, you're making me look bad

He just wanted to share some photos and videos since he's just getting into urban architecture.

May have been Walpole again, I've lost count how many accounts he has. The Lion is the only one that has yet to be banned.

I could be wrong maybe he's not but I feel like a lot of new SSC users these days are him.

You Jay I didn't come around like I use to. I don't know what Walpole did but I'm sure it was something elitist lol.

this will be my only other post on the matter as it's off topic, but i'm guessing urbancityspots was banned for something the rest of us didn't know about? he posted some quality shots on some of the other NY threads... what a shame.

Spectre thought he was Walpole, who shouldn't be banned, anyway.

I hope that isn't the case. He didn't seem to be RW. Since this thread has gone bonkers anyway, does anyone know where Desertpunk has been? I haven't seen any activity from him in a few weeks. Hopefully he's just on a vacation.

If I was a new poster, I'm sure I would have been banned mistaken for someone whom was a great contributor. I think I see where this is going. Any new members showing any enthusiasm for my city will be banned instantly.

I've notice that too with Desert Punk! Yea, hopefully he's in some vacation. He does goes MIA in spurts from time to time.

UrbanCitySpots account has been un-banned. An unfortunate case of misidentification.


[QUOTE=Vertical_Gotham;124254156]Any new members showing any enthusiasm for my city will be banned instantly.

@VG,sorry you feel this way. You couldn't be more wrong. This involves one user who has racked up countless infractions, briggings, rules violations, bannings, you name it over the years.

Well... quickly banning UrbanCitySpots has unfortunately led me to feel that way and I'm sure it has left a bad taste in his mouth, but I'm glad you unbanned him because it looks like he will be a great addition to the NYC threads and I'm glad your not listening to Jay's constant attempts in a witch hunt to out Lion as Walpole, whom I know is a separate user. Just my .02 cents. Cheers

yes. this was Realted-Oxford's initial master plan which won them the right to redevelop the railyard:






the designs of the Phase II towers have changed a bunch of times as new renderings came out.

Thanks for clearing that up. I have seen a few of those renders and I thought there were competing proposals to what we have now. The scope of this project is much bigger than I imagined. I should head to the area for some photos soon.

Why is Walpole (repeatedly) banned?

The current buildings going up in phase on look a lot different than Related's original plan (albeit similar heights) so I'm sure these will too.

Witch hunt? Dude it's an internet board, probably the wrong choice of words. If Lion isn't Robert Walpole then I'm sorry but judging from past posts I'm quite sure he is.

Anyway forget it, sorry for the off topic.
