    Maybe it's just me, but I can't see a single improvement of the new design over what's currently there

    It will probably have better lighting/be less filthy on the inside than what's currently there. Maybe the retail will rise to match what has been put on John St, since the all-year-round Christmas in NY store and the poster store are somewhat sad (not counting all the other sad retail in there right now). The exterior appears to be a wash.

    I know Greg (the P in shop) he and I worked together in a small architecture firm many years ago: at the time, term we used for a failed design, was that it looks "CaCa". You just called his new design 'CaCa' - he would be very disappointed by that remark you just made. I will not bother to ask weather or not you give a damn.......HeHe... I think I know the answer.

    So apparently pier 17 will be open for business until September with a third of stores still closed because of the hurricane

    Yet another reason why I disliked the proposed design. How on Earth did they design a "seaport" that does not allow for mooring? Do they know what the word "port" means?

    Apparently these HHC guys from Houston only care about words like "Port" "waterfront" etc. in terms of marketing and reports. Anything having to do with real history or such barely registers.

    Eh, it happens. I mean, how many sheep do you see here these days? http://www.centralparknyc.org/visit/...ep-meadow.html. That said, making them add moorings is ok too. They're going to serve a rather decorative purpose. We just don't use boats the way we used to.

    We've never been known for our flocks of sheep.

    Strictly a gimmick; they were brought in. They did mow the lawn though, and keep it fertilized. .

    There have always been boat excursions and special ship dockings (OpSail, etc) at South St Seaport.

    Yesterday on the news, they reported that the last of the businesses have closed, and they are starting the project next month.

    I think it is broken, but I'm not sure we're getting the fix.
