Sunday special: when compromise is not the best option

From Curbed:

More than two years ago, when plans surfaced about NYU's dorm at the site of St. Ann's Church on 12th Street, the university pledged to maintain the facade of the church...The facade of the church has been incorporated into the site of the dorm, but not into the dorm itself. Nothing on the worksite seems to indicate that there will be a connection between the aging steeple and what what has been called a "puke-colored-brick monstrosity."
