City Development Shitlord
Um...NYC is a city of 8.5 million -- it can use more than one decent public library, especially since the one at Bryant Park doesn't even have any modern facilities.
Many transportation terminals are in use while rebuilt. Also, if you mean the post office serving as an expansion as the "available building across the street," that will only be a band aid measure. If you mean the historic Pennsylvania Hotel, demolishing rather than restoring is counterintuitive to why the post office will be adaptively reused in the first place, and is about as cost effective to rebuild and expand on a leasehold anyway.I never said there was an expectation to put it back "EXACTLY" as it was. I said it makes no sense to build it at all. Especially since there is already a building there that is in constant use, and there is an available building across the street.
