Came across this story earlier today and I thought it deserved an "I'm Sorry What?" posting. Watch the video below and let me know what you think.
IMO, some thing like this could help many cities other then New York. For example, here in Toledo, OH we have a few empty buildings in the downtown area. So a project like this would be nice to have on the roof top. You can almost have it and if the building becomes a residential complex then you can probably have the residents pitch in a few days a month for a percentage off their monthly rent. It's an excellent idea and I hope we see more of these pop up in various cities.
