Interesting site. The article regarding the rezoning of manufacturing in NYC to residential reminds me of an issue that was brought up in an urban ecology course I took a couple years ago. Essentially the problem is that when a city begins to redevelop with a focus on residential reclamation, a hole is created in the core where jobs used to exist. People living in the core who have moved into these converted lofts have to commute out of town. A perfect example is what's happening in downtown Toronto right now.

Something definitely worth considering as the downtown rejuvenates.
