Yes. An astounding performance all around. Were they given lines ahead of time? What about buckets to throw-up in before things got started?

I still don't understand what's going on with this $78M. De we have:

1. Doners' giving $78M to a non-profit entity, which then
2. loans it to a for-profit entity (against the value of the land?),
3. which must then repay the loan to the non-profit entity. Hence,
4. The City's 50/50 split of the net doesn't kick in until that loan is repaid.

Is that what's going on?

Oh, yeah. I know that area. There's an area in the middle used by teen skaters. Pretty cool spot they have taken over and made into a sort of skating park. I wasn't aware it had been sold, or may have forgotten.

Yes. This is sad and unfortunate. Life is complicated, people too. I find it hard to think that what this young woman did is beyond the limit of human adventurousness. Unfortunately things went wrong. Sometimes that happens.

That is, where Hyman actually holds title to the Embankment, regardless of just how he got it, this other guy doesn't hold title to the Metro Plaza property. Rather, he's claiming he should be given the opportunity to buy the land because he intends to build a freight line. He's done this sort of thing elsewhere.

Re: Large Explosion in Chelsea - 135 W. 23rd - Dumpster Destroyed
#20
Home away from home
Home away from home


From a woman who lives in Chelsea, don't feed the trolls:

I live in Manhattan, in Chelsea, on 27th Street between 6th and 7th, the same block in which the second IED was found. It was a surreal weekend, but it is increasingly becoming depressing as the media moves from providing information to stoking fear, the exact response that makes these events so effective. I’m not afraid of bombs. I’m afraid of cars. And I’m increasingly becoming afraid of American media.

After hearing the bomb go off on 23rd and getting flooded with texts on Saturday night, I decided to send a few notes that I was OK and turn off my phone. My partner is Israeli. We’ve been there for two wars and he’s been there through countless bombs. We both knew that getting riled up was of no help to anyone. So we went to sleep. I woke up on Sunday, opened my blinds, and was surprised to see an obscene number of men in black with identical body types, identical haircuts, and identical cars. It looked like the weirdest casting call I’ve ever seen. And no one else. No cars, no people. As always, Twitter had an explanation so we settled into our PJs and realized it was going to be a strange day. [...]

The worst part about having statistical training is that it’s hard to hear people get anxious about fears without putting them into perspective. ~100 people die every day in car crashes in the United States. That’s 33,804 deaths in a year. Thousands of people are injured every day by cars. Cars terrify me. And anyone who says that you have control over a car accident is full of shit; most car deaths and injuries are not the harmed person’s fault. [...]

There’s a reason that hate is growing in this country. And, in moments like this, I’m painfully reminded that we’re all contributing to the culture of hate. When we turn events like what happened this weekend in NY/NJ into spectacle, when we encourage media to write stories about how afraid people are, when we read the stories of how the suspect was an average person until something changed, we give the news media license to stoke up fear. And when they are encouraged to stoke fear, they help turn our election cycle into reality TV and enable candidates to spew hate for public entertainment. We need to stop blaming what’s happening on other people and start taking responsibility.

In short, we all need to stop feeding the trolls.

Yes. There's a lot of big real estate money coming into the City, not to mention the folks who store their art collections at Mana Contemporary. If the citizens of Jersey City say loud and clear "we want this and we'll support it" the money will come. Not automatically, of course, donors will have to be courted, etc. But the money will be there.

No "perhaps" about it.

Berry Lane is is over 17 acres and required considerable remediation. No bridges, but lots of playing fields, fencing, and landscaping. It cost $35 million. I don't see the Embankment costing three times that.

If you're arguing that it wouldn't cost that much though, you're going to lose that argument. Some how, some way, I promise you it would end up costing almost half a billion, if not more.


I don't know what the Embankment project would actually cost, but $500M is an extravagant over-estimate. Chicago's Millennium Park covers 24.5 acres, required considerable construction and landscaping, a starchitect (Frank Gehry), 2 or 3 major artists and it was 'only' $475M (a decade ago). The Embankment isn't on that scale.

What are the commonalities again?


That's almost 60M tourists right across the river, annually. What would it take to get 1% of them across the Hudson to JC? 3%? That's 600,000 and 1,800,000. If they each spend $10 in JC, that's $6 to $18M. If it's $50, then $30M to $90M.

A Glorified Sidewalk, and the Path to Transform Atlanta


Planners now say Atlanta’s population, which stands at about 463,000, could double in the next 15 years. Many of the new residents could end up living along the BeltLine.

In a study this year, Mr. Leinberger and a colleague, Michael Rodriguez, showed that areas they identified as “walkable urban places” in the nation’s 30 largest metro areas were gaining market share over car-dependent suburban areas for “perhaps the first time in 60 years,” and earning higher rental premiums.

The High Line in New York, which turned an elevated stretch of Manhattan rail line into a linear park, is perhaps the best known of the nation’s urban infrastructure makeovers. Chicago’s has also converted an old elevated track into a greenway, christening it the 606. Miami’s Underline is reimagining 10 miles of underused land under its elevated Metrorail system as an art-lined “urban trail.”

Still, many say Atlanta’s plans stand out.

Private investment along the entire proposed route has surged to $3 billion. Foundations and private donors have given more than $54 million for paths, parks and other amenities. Home prices have risen in formerly overlooked working-class neighborhoods where the BeltLine is set to expand.

Candidates in the 2017 mayoral race, meanwhile, are turning BeltLine promises into central elements of their campaigns.
