Hudson Yards Is Manhattan’s Biggest, Newest, Slickest Gated Community. Is This the Neighborhood New York Deserves?
Tuesday 19 March 2019
You can see it on the skyline or along the Hudson River, upending Manhattan’s silhouette. During the last half dozen years it has materialized almost like a mirage, levitating above more than a dozen gritty acres of working rail tracks on the Far West Side. The largest mixed-use private real-estate venture in American history, it is called Hudson Yards.
Metropolitics needs your help more than ever! Our journal, launched 10 years ago, will sadly be forced to close in the next few months if we do not manage to raise around €20,000 ($25,000). We are therefore calling upon your solidarity and generosity to help keep Metropolitics going, free and accessible to all. If you pay taxes in France, your donation is 66% tax-deductible.
