There is no cancelation yet. Just a bunch of greedy residents who never want anything remotely as tall being built. This is just advisory, not mandatory.

I didn't realize that New York had such a NIMBY problem. I live in ND and all we have is a bunch of empty, open spaces. Why don't these people move out here if that is what they want? Skyscrapers are a part of New York.

instead of signing a lame online petition that'll never sway anyone's minds...

why dont people go to the community board meetings and strike back at the nimby's. does anyone ever tell the nimby's what is said on this forum? someone should.

it would be cool if we could collect enough money to get a huge advertisement on the side of a building that says something like "skyscrapers are a part of New York, get used to it! "

Only the first 4 floors. The rest is hotels and condos.

Modern art, economic and social progress, and revolutionary design that contrasts former convention will always be unfortunately be stymied by some opposition. Occasionally opposition is necessary and felicitous, in inappropriate cases (such as a skyscraper in a low-rise area) or when an egregiously and aesthetically wrong building is proposed. That is not what we have here, we need to make the name of progress and aesthetic beauty louder than its opposition (See signature below).

NIMBY bastards and CB5 members me sick and want to cry. They should all move to the suburbs where they belong. Opposing something like this is the hallmark of your mindless NIMBY douchebag. Burn in hell, dickcheese. They voted like 21-to-1 against this tower. Try another plot? So why? So you can bitch about the tower there too? Eat your asses out.

They say this project is still quit a long way from dead, thank god.

What the hell? Are these NIMBYs serious? Could they look around their neighborhood?

Ahhh, If I lived near a tower like this i'd be amazed and thankfull!
Someone please tell me why they live in Manhattan if they don't want skyscrapers built!

This is by far the best looking skyscraper proposed for NYC. If Built, this, ESB and Chrysler would be the best three in the whole of the U.S.
I Love this tower, and it suits Manhattan so much!

I love this building. New York has been on the cutting edge of architectural design since the 1890's and this isn't going to change. Moma is just so much more sophisticated than Aqua or Chicago Spire.

We're at 353 signatures as I type. If you feel the way many of us do, please sign the petition. It only takes 30 seconds. This is a project not only for New York but for the World. Let our voices be heard.

Don't worry. We'll do our best to do everything possible it takes to get this built. Nothing else even comes close.
This is a fight to the death, and because NY is starting to enter her biggest skyscraper boom yet, our chances are better than ever.

I find it amazing (and appalling) to see that NY is home to so many NIMBY...?
I mean... Man-*******-hattan!!! Why in the world would you be there if you're not pro-skyscraper?!
Is that some really twisted and sick form of sadomasochism?
Did their mommy torment them with lego buildings during their childhood?

They can **** right off.

Sorry, but it does my head in...
