"I was also struck by one feature of the proposed building: a roof deck with park space." Lots of Park Slope buildings have roof decks or backyards. So your point is?

I agree that this building conflicts with Olmstead and Vaux's vision for the park, but it is hardly the only tall incursion. Patio Gardens is a PLG building complex that is only slightly shorter {BTW,Ebbits Field Houses is in Crown Heights rather than PLG}, There are MANY tall apartment buildings on Prospect Park West that are very visible from the Long Meadow, as is the Richard Meier building in Prospect Heights

My goodness, "The Stratos"! That lies somewhere between uber geeky and ultra coolest analogy ever!
