The cultural heritage of NYC is very important to my enjoyment of the city, and this includes historical buildings. Sparkly new developments lose NYC’s rich identity.

This is absolutely sickening. More historical and environmental destruction and more wildlife displacement all in the name of greed. Those pushing for this should be ashamed of their complete and total lack of morals and ethics. This is a travesty.

RIch people and real estate developers are always out of control trying to destroy historical landmarks. South Street Seaport and it's neighbors should remain as historical and put into National Historical Register of Place to prevent from greedy real estate developers and greedy rich taxpayers from destroying historical landmark. They already taken away historical Pier 17.

Thanks for adding your voice.

There should be a moratorium on all new high rise construction. Too many neighborhoods are being destroyed. Too many people are being displaced and the entire city is being homogenized and the quality compromised to a completely unhealthy state ,and l all the beloved character of NYC has been squeezed out of life.

Thanks for adding your voice.

This proposed tower is too tall and wholly inappropriate for this parcel that lies within the South Street Seaport Historic District.

Thanks for adding your voice.

This is a disgraceful overdevelopment of a historic site. I’m not opposed to towers, just not at the expense of New York’s vanishing pre-war heritage.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I once worked there, and the area needs the seaport. No more monster buildings!

Historic buildings need to be preserved not only for their historic value but as an example of the architecture of that time. Unless the buildings are in danger of collapsing or causing injury to someone then they should be preserved and maintained. We have a lot of new and modern buildings and the old buildings can still Be used for the same purpose as the new buildings. Don’t destroy our history, preserve it.
