On the Sofa: GL Reader Comments

February 3rd, 2008 · 1 Comment

Every week, we like to a highlight a few of comments left behind by GL readers during the previous seven days. Here’s a selection from this week:

More Renderings of the Domino Glass Box. “Surely with all those giant massive towers filled with apartments, does this really need a glass topped whatever? Hell, it could be a heliport cuz I doubt anyone rich enough to buy into this are gonna want to take the L train. Oh, no, right, these people will all have cars and will be jammin’ the bridges every rush hour…” [Anonymous]

Red Hook #3: Removed Beard Street Paving Stones Reappear. “I love Ikea and they did a great job reincorporating them. You assholes will never be happy. Always looking for something to complain about.” [Anonymous]

Gowanus Update: Slow Going at the Bunker on Bond. “Design by Scarano. Facade by IKEA! It’s awful . . . not as awful as I thought it would be, but still Stasi approved.” [Gary]

No Day of Rest at 340 Court, as Application is Filed. “Ok Rogers Marvel, are you a licensed architect? How do you feel about non union labor? Please, show us what you have up your sleeves. A glass and cement richard meire fake? A brentwood cluster? a paramus strip mall? Please, we are all very interested…” [Anonymous]

2nd Street Cafe Closing Followup: Seventh Ave. Retail Bummer? “BTW, it is not just 7th Avenue. Take a walk down 5th and you’ll see more boarded up store fronts with landlords waiting for some chain or bank to move in. Rumor has it that a certain french restaurant on 5th Ave and 4th is about to go under, and several others are teetering on the edge of solvency.” [Anonymous]
