NYC is not becoming California or Los Angeles. If anything it is borrowing ideas that work from various cities across the world, mostly from Europe, and catering them to the needs of New Yorkers.

It's about time our waterfront becomes more accessible. So much potential.
My thoughts exactly. I keep on being reminded of Copenhagen's successful efforts to clean up its harbor; nowadays people swim in it freely. The point on property values in particular rings true considering how much access to green space is valued in this city.

We are entering a new era, New Urbanism. Cities built for the people (pedestrians).
