    I was wondering when this hole was going to be developed. Seems like to last building left not to be around those few blocks on 14th. Eager.

      Seriously. These guys are like 1 out of 100. They stopped the hotel at U/13th, correct?

        Stopped the hotel and instead got an apartment building. Wouldn’t a hotel create more precious daytime foot traffic that they claim to care about?

        I used to be on their Yahoo Listserv and it was a hot mess of craziness.

      Who are the NIMBYs?

        The Wallach Place cabal. They tried to “save” the post office/carpet store next door to what is now Matchbox (and even enlisted Eleanor Holmes-Norton on the Post Office), tried to prevent the tear-down of the 13th Street Rite Aid for a 7 story hotel (will now be an apartment bldg as others have noted), and also protested this project, I believe. It’s a nice little street with a few folks who want life to stay the way it was in 1996.

    Am I the only one who wonders what the last day at the Mitoni’s Unisex Styling Salon was like?
