On the Sofa: GL Reader Comments

Once a week, we highlight a few random comments left by GL readers during the previous week. Here are some from the past seven days:

Toll Brothers Gowanus Development Gets Scoped. "People are raising the toilet problem. Unfortunately, City Planning could care less about that since it doesn't fall within that agencies purview. The people who should be protesting the loudest are Toll since raw sewage is not exactly a selling point." [Anonymous]

Atlantic Yards Opponents: "Dear Governor Paterson".
"No Brooklynite I have ever ever met anyhwere has anything but WRATH for Ratner and is ill-conceived MEGA-BOMB project. Let's pray Paterson will save us from this disaster we will all live to regret in its current format. Let's GET A ULURP NOW for AY!! That was one of countless unnecessary, human, greedy errors with this over-sized monster from the start..." [Anonymous]

Atlantic Yards Opponents: "Dear Governor Paterson". "I think the new Gov will have truly important things to deal with and stopping this exciting project should not be one of them. I've lived in the AY part of BK for close to 20 years and I am looking forward to this innovative and architecturally stunning renaissance of what has been an ugly hole in the middle of Brooklyn for way too long." [Annika S.]

More Fun with the Carroll Gardens Hell Building. "It's a monstrosity. This developer has a 'history' with doing this sort of thing. I'm not against developmentā€”as long as it's in keeping with the neighborhood and the neighborhood can sustain the change. But I live a 1/2 block away from this and it's having an 8+ story high-rise in the middle of brownstone Brooklyn." [Anonymous]
