NY Mag on Far West Side Redevelopment

The cover story in this week’s New York magazine is all about Deputy Mayor Daniel Doctoroff’s expansive plans for the Far West Side of Manhattan, particularly a new stadium for the New York Jets.

Of course, to Doctoroff it isn’t a stadium, but a multi-purpose facility for conventions, concerts, restaurants, the Olympics … and, oh yes, the Jets would play there too. I’m still skeptical about the idea, but I must admit the article makes as as good a case for the project as can be made, while also pointing out the drawbacks. Most of the arguments have been pretty one-sided, so it’s refreshing to see a feature piece that’s balanced.

A 6,000-page environmental impact statement is expected in a few weeks’ time. I’m sure it’ll make light bedtime reading.
