I would ask that Amazon be a considerate, good neighbor, instead of imposing itself onto existing communities or ‘disrupting’ a community. Amazon can muscle its way into online book sales and organic supermarkets with low margins, but I hope it doesn’t apply that mindset to design, architecture, and the fabric of whichever community it winds up in. Before cities and states trip over themselves trying to throw tax cuts at Amazon, I hope they remember their own constituents’ needs while attracting new businesses.

Testimonials

Dear Will...On behalf of Marla Simpson, Janelle Farris, Angela Chiappara and the Cornerstone site directors, I want to thank you for the excellent job you did putting together the Brooklyn Community Services Cornerstone report. Your observations are very astute, and a significant number of the recommendations easy for us to implement. We all appreciate the work and care that went into this project. Your report will be a valuable resource for both the Cornerstone programs and the communities they serve. It was a pleasure working with you.
