I don't think i'll ever step foot in the mall. I'll probably swing by Hudson Yards once everything is fully cleaned up and the public realm is opened up fully. I think the new space is what most NYers will appreciate in the near future, especially folks in Midtown West/Chelsea. There will be a lot more once Phase 2 rolls out.

As for the review, It's a good critique, but it focuses too much on the negatives and has a Marxist (blech!) tinge to it. Between the Amazon debacle and reading this, it gives me a depressing "Why we can't have nice things" feeling towards the city. I agree that we can't judge Hudson Yards as a work in progress.

Decking over an active rail yard must be quite expensive so I really don't know what other kind of site plan they could have come up with. I'll want to see more pics of the mall and the pedestrian environment but if the lowrise architecture is great, I'll have no complaints. Obviously to make a profit after building over an active rail yard, there must be a high density of skyscrapers targeted at big spenders, which are obviously the wealthy and big companies. One legitimate criticism is the open space becoming a driveway in practice, but I'll have to see pics to see how that works out in reality. Also the development connects nicely with the High Line and Hudson Boulevard as I said earlier. So not perfect, but I still give it an 8 or higher out of 10, compared to the average American development project of strip malls and suburbia it's indisputably stunning, with tons of additional stunning architecture to the south along the High Line.

Well, you know, some people can't necessarily negotiate stairs...
