The scale of New York is being drastically changed – not just in Midtown Manhattan, but in neighborhoods throughout the city. The tide of “supertall” towers beginning to rise in residential areas, including those surrounding Central Park, is symptomatic of the unprecedented threats to parks, playgrounds, light, air, landmarks, small businesses, and community quality of life all New Yorkers face. City policies have enabled, and sometimes incentivized, this trend.
All are invited to participate in an action-oriented discussion about why so many of these towers are invading our city, and what we can do about it.
