Architectural historian Christopher Gray, author of the weekly Streetscapes column in the New York Times, made jabs at development in his most recent piece, entitled "Confessions of a Preservationist." The entertaining philosophical rant includes a personal anecdote in which Gray admits to having painted a sign declaring “Another Ugly Monster Coming Soon” and hanging it in front of a billboard advertising a new development.
