Not so super blocks

Today I walked home from church through a neighborhood I know very little about. It's the area between the Upper East Side and Spanish Harlem. While I still found the place to be interesting and wonderful, I got a strange feeling while walking through. The area seems to have almost completely embraced the "super block," which isn't so conducive to foot traffic or community building in my opinion. I'll refrain from criticizing as I struggle to form an official opinion. I would love to have seen what the place looked like before it was gutted though.
