Maybe a MOD can make a Hudson Yards thread. Feel free to delete this comment if/when you do.
I don't know about stagnation, but opposition to development is the biggest single reason by housing is so expensive in NYC. Rent regulated tenants and homeowners can afford to oppose new development because they are mostly immune from the housing market (or even benefit from a tight market, if they sell their home or illegally sublet their apartment), but the rest of us suckers end up paying the price. Unfortunately, market rate tenants are a minority in NY and prospective residents who are priced out don't get a vote.
