Architectural Petting Zoo

Architecture critic, Michael Kimmelman, on Hudson Yards:

It is, at heart, a supersized suburban-style office park, with a shopping mall and a quasi-gated condo community targeted at the 0.1 percent. A relic of dated 2000s thinking, nearly devoid of urban design, it declines to blend into the city grid… I wondered who would want to live in an architectural petting zoo.
