No More Tall Stories

In 1986 CIVITAS initiated another study, No More Tall Stories, which makes the case for lower buildings, same height as their neighbors, and elimination of plazas. A video illustrating the issue was produced and Paul Newman narrated it.

This was followed, in 1989, by another study, A Draft for Discussion: Upper East Side Avenue Study. A land use survey was conducted in high-density zones on the avenues.
