“Rampantly Narcissistic” LEED Condos, Paterson Support for Congestion Pricing, & Defiant Atlantic Yards

gbNYC selects green news items of note that were reported across the New York City area during the week of March 16, 2008, including thoughts on New York City’s current crop of high-end condo buildings- many of which will be LEED-certified- from the Times’ Nicolai Ouroussoff, Governor Paterson’s support for congestion pricing in Manhattan, and the refusal of Bruce Ratner’s “green” Atlantic Yards project to disappear, despite ongoing delays and devolving market conditions.
