  • Katherine Cruz Get those Condos out of here! Everything in NY is being lost to condos, 5 Pointz, Pearl Paint, the domino Sugar factory, the germania bank building on 190 bowery. No no no, it's time we start taking our city back! No to these condos! I love the seaport so much, its a historic old fashion area, there is no way these disgusting(disgusting because I have had enough) condos have a purpose at the seaport! Its a place to get away from it all, no to the condos! And as for the new mall? The look does not fit in at all with the place! What's next to go?!

  • Amanda It looks hideous. It is a ridiculous idea. It is so big and doesn't fit in with anything surrounding it. Leave the historics alone.

  • Katherine Cruz Agreed Amanda!! And the new look for the mall is horrible too! Does not fit in at all compared to the "homey" look of the old building :(
