Yesterday on the F Train, I overheard a man complaining about real estate prices in New York. He was also commenting on the planned conversion of the Peter Cooper Villages/Stuy Town buildings to condos. He said, "You know, the ones that look like projects?" I would have to agree with him on that one, at least from the outside.
