From the Riverdale Press:
It’s easy to imagine what might have happened if the historic district had not been created three and a half years ago. Just walk down Indian Road, where in the 1990s what were relatively small but attractive houses have been all but obliterated by insensitive additions. Or look at the row of houses built in the late 1970s on the west side of Delafield Avenue just north of West 246th Street in a style the landmarks commission charitably describes as “none.”
Riverdalians are proud of Riverdale’s reputation as a beautiful community. But a sober assessment would show that that reputation depends on all too few places. We can’t afford to squander what’s left.
Amazing that an entire page was devoted to this little ode to overdevelopment. And if someone can explain what "We must continue to grow upward as our dense population increases and our suburban centers attempt to remain bucolic" means, I would appreciate it. If the population is already dense (and our services suck) why would we encourage it to grow? Where exactly are our bucolic suburban centers?
