In this video, Brenda Becker of Prospect: A Year in the Park and Charles Star of Hawthorne Street debate (quite civilly, considering they probably both want to scratch each other's eyes out) the pros and cons of the new 20-story glass tower slated to be built on Lincoln Road, adjacent to Prospect Park.
In a nutshell, Ms. Becker disapproves of the project (there goes Olmstead's vision of a building-free oasis) and Mr. Star approves of it (well, it's better than a festering rathole). Opinion on Brownstoner runs very hot both pro and con.
