Report on Halted Development in Your Neighborhood

Tuesday, July 28, 2009 - 09:42 AM

Drastic changes in the economy have ground many developers’ plans to a halt in the New York City metro region. We’re tracking cranes on pause as the latest chapter of our project, Your Uncommon Economics Indicators. Help us map and photograph the empty condos, half-baked luxury high rises and stalled construction projects.

Check out the map below for all the submissions we've received so far.

Add Your Observation: You can help us make the project even better by adding more sites and information below. Your post will appear on our new map soon. Bear with us while we complete its construction (we promise the economy won't stall it!), and thanks for working with us to tell this important story!
