Whitney Plan B wins Approval

I actually like it better. The new entrance is more graceful and it reads as a clear part of the city fabric. I agree with Piano’s rationalization quote:

    “In some ways it will be even more surprising, what you see after the compression – to have a kind of expansion.”

Although when you look at the plans, the preserved Brownstone is really just a superficial gesture – but what is Manhattan if not superficial?
