99.999% of the country is land that is either undeveloped or if developed, only has short buildings on it. (If you look on a map of the U.S., cities are just dots and the CBD’s of the cities where there are tall buildings are just dots within the dots. That just shows you how tiny the areas are where there are tall buildings).

These NIMBYs decide to live in the 0.001% part of the country that has tall buildings on it and then complain about and fight against tall buildings.

That’s how ridiculous these people are.

It's worse. I can't find the article but the face/voice of the neighborhood opposition for 200 Amsterdam lives in a rent controlled apartment in one of the most expensive zip codes in the nation. It's insane.

And presumably since city government is now in the business of policing floor to ceiling heights in residential buildings, every other problem in the city must have been solved. We did it!

^ And unfortunately the politicians end up listening to them even though they are a very small minority. I read somewhere that most regular NY’ers (the silent majority) are not against tall buildings. But because of how it is set up (people that don’t object to towers are not going to fight for them while the few that do object to towers are always going to work on fighting them) the most vocal minority gets their voices heard and zoning laws catered to and passed based on their NIMBY complaints.

All the downzonings, height limits, etc. throughout the city are the result of NIMBYs complaining about “overdevelopment, non-contextual buildings, traffic, etc.”

With an anticipated 2019 completion, I suspect Q4, this should move quite rapidly.
