  • By coincidence, I was on East 38th Street last night. The new apartments directly to the east of the Meadows look relatively decent, and the landscaping in particular looked quite nice.

    This new project is huge. The commercial development looks like a standard box store set back from the street behind a parking lot, which saddens me. However, the housing units look logically placed.
