While building can go 3-dimension to accommodate the booming population in NYC, its public transportation system remains the same old 2-dimension so be prepared to get squeezed and jammed more and more in future living of NYC

Anyone who thinks this city should be adding anymore housing / people / occupancy should be hung in Times Square. I just don't get the obsession of packing more and more people in and living like animals.

The subways are an absolute disgrace. Much closer what I would expect to find in a third world country. They are ao jam packed, and that will only get worse. And traffic - it took nearly three hours for me to get from soho to JFK last Thursday afternoon. At what point is enough, enough?

NYC subways packed? Have you ever been to Tokyo? They hire people to pack riders in the doors, before they close them.

If you don't like crowds/density, move to Montana.

Move. 99% of the rest of the United States is not this densely populated. I don't understand people who cry about density and urbanity while living in freakin New York City.

NYC is not even that dense, especially outer boroughs. I'd call it dense once they start building supertalls in Flushing.

I'm sure the future buyers of these super high rise apartments appreciate your concern but I doubt they will be packing into any subway anytime soon. For the majority of us, discussing these apartments is like deciding what to do with your lottery money if you win.

The more people have to live way out of the city, the more they will be packing like animals in the highways, commuter trains and subways. At least many people who live in Manhattan, Brooklyn or LIC have the option to walk or bike to work.

Which does not mean that anything less than this still isn't "packed".
