Reasonable discourse

judah Spechal from bed stuy says:
They are all ugly. Looks like the "Iron Giant" threw up. This urban design era seriously needs some retooling. They are all boxes w/glass. I've never understood sans technology the old designer had way more imagination.
See area around Willie B

Paul A. from Bay Ridge/Ft. Hamilton says:
The best of these so-called designs is Toll Bros. and they aren't getting any gold stars either. All of these buildings look like 21st centuary prisons. I think todays architect/designers have been influenced by the remake of East Berlin. They used bricks, we're using glass blocks

Why do people insist on destroying Brooklyn? These buildings are ugly. They look cold an empty. Sorta like the new Brooklyn transplants. Please go ruin another city.

All of these structures look like they do not belong in the park.....or anywhere else for that matter.
