Which New York Buildings Would You Demolish?

City Room {NY Times Blog]
by Sewell Chan

The Times's blog picks up on a weekend article by architecture critic Nicolai Ourousoff pondering whether some New York City buildings are so ugly they should be torn down, and cites an amNY list compiled in June.

The story reprises that amNY list, which included one of Bruce Ratner's lovely Brooklyn malls, but adds an odd parenthetical note:

Atlantic Center (giant mixed-use project), Fort Greene and Prospect Heights, Brooklyn


NoLandGrab: Actually, the Atlantic Center is just a crappy mall. However, we could all save New York City the trouble of having to tear down Bruce Ratner's "giant mixed-use" Atlantic Yards project by stopping the white elephant from ever being built in the first place.
