The truth about a complex built for veterans and the middle class and how it has evolved through the years to become one of the more interesting and controversial of New York stories.

Ugly and Pathetic
UPDATE ALERT: More trees are being cut down in the Oval Lawn today....
The garden crescent on the east side of the Oval is being filled with new plantings in a horrid design and look that defines the words "ugly" and "pathetic." And for this we permanently lost trees and the lush natural arbor that was there before and the sense of living in an oasis in the middle of Manhattan??? Everyone I talk to about unnecessary transformation of the Oval greenery is upset and mortified. This is a major, irretrievable mistake by CWCapital and its CompassRock subsidiary. Triple shame on them.
Meanwhile, the Powers That Be put on another hugely successful Lady Maya event: televised baseball on Saturday afternoon. Hundreds, no make that thousands, filled the Oval Lawn.
Okay, I think it's time to start calling Stuyvesant Town "Stuy Slum." What do you think?....
