Inside the Mind of a Brooklyn Developer

Shaya Boymelgreen tells The Brooklyn Paper how sometimes even real estate developers don’t like their buildings:

Sometimes, I see something in my head that I think will be beautiful. But at the end of the day, it doesn’t come out like I want, because of the zoning, because of the architect, because of the finishing. You’re not 100 percent in control. … Sometimes I see something that’s finished, and I can’t quite change it.
