Students, both very young and older, occupy a Stuy Town apartment in a tier arrangement that allows for at least 12 people to occupy one living space:
After the removal of SCRIE benefits, the senior population will not be able to afford rents in PCVST and will be housed in cages somewhere offsite, perhaps even in Staten Island:
Building codes will be considerably relaxed to make way for maximum density usage of space. Stuy Town apartments will be reconfigured, allowing for several apartments where only one existed before. Here we see a typical Stuy Town apartment that uniquely integrates bedroom, dining area and kitchen:
A crowd gathers at the Oval Lawn to watch the latest Summer Program. The student population of PCVST will have reached 125,000, and with the addition of students converging from the surrounding neighborhood, PCVST events will prove to be extremely popular. For residents and their guests.
Our neighbors at Waterside Plaza will see their buildings also transformed in the name of density:
It still will take decades to remove all older three or four story dwellings that exist in the city, as can be seen in this photo, but they are surely marked for the bulldozer and replacement by modern spires.
Hoarders will not have a good time of it in the new NYC:
Stuyvesant Town/Peter Cooper Village will get several transformations. Ultimately most of park space will be eradicated in favor of towers much higher than allowable at present, and they will be built considerably closer together. In honor of tradition, however, a few trees from what some naively call "the good old days" will remain (foreground).
