NEW YORK CITY-The Fourth Avenue corridor in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn has failed to attract more street activity due to poor building design. About 859 new apartments are either already completed, under development or still in planning since the rezoning in 2003.

However, most of the buildings have concrete slabs, air vents or parking garages at the street level instead of cafes or shops, which led to severe criticism. Now, City Planning officials are cautious about rezoning efforts and are including retail space compulsorily in each building. For the full story, go to Wall Street Journal.
