i believe people are happier in low rise RESIDENTIAL neighborhoods where there is sun on the sidewalks. please design for sun capture. 15 stories is the ideal residential-height because anything higher blocks the sun's east/west traverse.

I think it’s a noble cause, and it’s explains about how populated New York is compared to living space. I also recognize some of the members of the house supporting this petition.

Its not only about Central Park. All of NYC can benefit from the closure of this loophole.

Because for dozens of reasons both aesthetic and environmental, this must stop.

Water towers are being housed at the top of these buildings too. Mechanically moving water takes large amounts of energy.
We need to consider the climate-impacts resulting from the enormous amount of kWh's needed to constantly pump water to the tops of these structures. Buildings that are no more that 6-stories meet the definition of sustainabliity when it comes to water delivery. All buildings over 6-stories in NYC have a significant "unsustainable-factor" that should be driving our planning now. Till we have a real handle on NYC CO2 outputs, we need to VOID ALL BUILDING OVER 6-stories.

Central Park is a treasure that is under threat.
