Bids For Hudson Rail Yards Due Today

This morning’s edition of AMNY has a story about the Hudson Rail Yards. The story mentions that bids are due today for anyone wanting the rights to the 26 acre property. These 26 acres are considered to be a sacred opportunity that will never be available again in Manhattan’s future. The land’s developments are seen as a crucial project for Manhattan’s future.

While many of the biggest names in New York real estate are expect to submit different bids, the vision for the land will not be different amongst them. Developers hope to turn the 26 acres into a thriving waterfront filled with hotels, housing, office towers, shopping, & parks.

Why can’t the property remain as rail yards? What is the obsession with building the same things on every square inch of NYC? I am all for development & rebuilding neighborhoods. However I do not support every bit of free space being seen as potentially developed properties. Why do some have the desire to see everyone in NYC squished together like a family of roaches? Sometimes I wish I was back in the suburbs where I had plenty of space & a sense of non squished freedom!
