Clinton: Adding to a string of crimps in big plans for the West Side, the redo of neoclassical Farley Post Office into a train station/moved Madison Square Garden is $1 billion short. Egad. [NYS]
Greenwich Village: Should NYU's I.M. Pei–designed Silver Towers be landmarked...or are they just, well, ugly? [Gothamist]
