The city released its plans for its vision of a new West Side (centerpiece being a stadium for the Jets), called Hudson Yards. The city has a snazzy Hudson Yards website, complete with its vision, mission, proposal, photographs of the neighborhood, and a timeline. But Gothamist was struck by this photograph of the railyards the new development would replace, because there's something beautiful about this mass of trains in the middle of the city.
Gothamist on the West Side development. And there's an underrated movie from 2000 called The Yards, starring Mark Wahlberg and Joaquin Phoenix, about the abandoned railyards in Queens.
