On the Next Represent NYC: Superscrapers with NYC Council Member Ben Kallos

New York City has seen an increase in the number of "superscrapers" being built throughout the city. These tall buildings are not only out-of-scale, but often unwanted in residential neighborhoods. One notable example that has mobilized community members is the proposed development of a 900-foot tower threatening the Sutton Area, a historic and residential area on the Upper East Side. 
 
On the next episode of Represent NYC, Ben Kallos, whose City Council District 5 will be directly impacted by the Sutton Area development, talks about this issue with Mike Ernst, the Director of Planning at the Municipal Arts Society, Rachel Levy, a Preservation and Planning Associate at FRIENDS of the Upper East Side Historic Districts, and Dieter Seelig the President of the Sutton Area Community.
