  • The future of Central Park is threatened by large, dark shadows that are cast by superscrapers.
  • The New York State Legislature must pass A5026/S3820!!!

Supertall buildings already completed or under construction will cast long shadows in the Park, blocking playgrounds, open fields, pathways and vegetation from sunlight. This bill will prevent builders from taking further advantage of multiple loopholes in our zoning code that threaten Central Park. We encourage the State to pass this important legislation which will benefit New York for generations to come

We believe that the New York City Department of City Planning text amendment is overly generous. With the City’s disinterest in finding a meaningful way to close loopholes, passing this state-level legislation is essential. For a city so starved for both affordable housing and space, we cannot tolerate zoning that invites developers to perch super luxury housing units atop empty void space. Assemblymember Linda B. Rosenthal and State Senator Robert Jackson are the prime sponsors of legislation (A5026/S3820) that would amend the multiple dwelling law to close the mechanical void and other loopholes.
