^ That is good to see although it is still just a drop in a bucket and more the exception than the rule. I like that is more urban and street friendly than the former depressing towers-in-the-park projects although it needs to be denser like the YIMBY article suggests.

I totally agree it's the exception to the rule for now. But it will be happening a lot more in the future as other NYCHA buildings crumble beyond reasonable repair and as neither the state nor the feds are interested in allocating money for repairs. The feds will just relocate the people in those projects elsewhere when the time comes.
