DEVELOPMENT SHOWDOWN: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, conservation groups, the Manhattan and Bronx borough presidents and former New Jersey governors object to the design of a new headquarters for LG Electronics USA above the scenic New Jersey cliffs on the Hudson River called the Palisades.
THE SITE: LG's 8-story headquarters would stand across the river from the Cloisters museum, which is owned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Fort Tryon Park in upper Manhattan.
OBJECTION: Opponents say they're not opposed to LG building on the site. They just want the new headquarters to be squat and below the tree line.
