Xanadu: A bad idea by any other name...

Is Xanadu too ugly for the Meadowlands? This is the question asked on Jerseyblogs, but I think the answer is two-fold: Too ambitious and just too much. Xanadu is the incarnation of a bad project that is too diffused and too high concept (forsaking practicality). It's some connected developer's idea of something that 'is very needed for people,' but just isn't. Like many other bad ideas, it's just a way to make a buck out of thin air. It seems forced and I think it's just a project of questionable value and viability.

Xanadu is a titanic idea -- just like the ship.
