    I had my NYU classes just up those steps. Of course, the NYU portion is super modern and doesn't allow entry from the lobby, but at least one could get a good view from the classrooms inside.

    Apparently the steel delivered this week was premature and they are waiting for the correct steal to be delivered onsite next week. From SSP.

    There are plenty of KKK members in the US that burnt down black households in the 1950s and 1960s while placing white crosses on the front lawn. There are also modern churches like Westboro Baptist...

    I think the appearance of its 'bulkiness' will disappear somewhat when the orange construction fences are replaced by sky-reflecting glass. Particularly on the North face. Also, the North facing...

    I am not Muslim, but I think "Allah Wakbar" is a simple saying of "God is Great". It is not at all associated with hate and violence, unless you think that the <1% of Muslims that made up Al-Qaeda...

    Reading the first sentence I was like :eek:

    but then I saw it was a 4-5 foot fall and a non-life threatening wound.:cool:

    I heard on NY1 that these kids will be punished at the beginning of next school year. Good thing they weren't seniors.

    Also, in defense of the pools, they were built to anticipate jackals. I...

    These are the first generation of kids to not have seen the event on television, so its no surprise they have absolutely no emotional attachment to it. Not to mention classroom sizes are so big these...

    In my opinion:

    It sounds like Durst was brought on board in 2010 to take all the blame for these cost saving measures. The authority believed that paying him $15 million was worth it. This...

    it's really impossible to tell if the heliostats do anything just by looking up at them. You need to have measurements of the amount of light entering on any given day with and without those things...

    That is a 3D interior mockup of the arena. Click it and see what the arena will look like from each section.

    I'm sure if NYC got the olympics then they would have found a way to speed up construction by two months. This thing is still supposed to open in September with Jay-Z's concert.

    I believe that is level with the street. It is not a ramp, the most likely explanation is that the the angle of the camera is tricking the eye. The area around the 'wings' is actually quite plain and...

    The crappy buildings across the street housing payless shoes and easyspirit could easy become a 400k square foot residential or hotel. There will be more downtown demand as soon as the WTC towers...

    Where can these air rights go? There are plenty of decent condemnations nearby that can use a good 400k of square footage for a new tower.

    The 1-800-Got-Junk truck helps to add interest on the right side of the picture, and adds a great juxtaposition to the car signs on the left. I'd prefer it if it were just B&W or color, though.

    At least the below-grade portion of 2WTC is still being completed. I am eternally optimistic about this tower's imminent restart being signed sealed and delivered before the end of 2012 with a...

    I am pretty sure the building will be complete, footprint, sidewalks and all, before construction is stopped, if ever.

    Even though it will hopefully get a little more personality as its finished and opened, this building screams "middle America community college" and not "downtown Manhattan". Colleges used to put so...
