    Default Leibovitz Photos

    I walked by yesterday; in addition to the large photographs on the parapet, which you can see in LeCom's photo, there are probably 50 or so plastered (advertisment style) on the plywood 'fence' surrounding the site. I would recommend walking by, it is pretty cool.

    It is cool. Along with the photos is some text including a sentence that says of the building (from memory now,) "considered to be the most significant addition to the New York skyline in decades..."

    They don't say considered by who, but that's a pretty bold claim. Thing is, it's defensible - they might be right. Here's hoping so.

    Photography by Annie Leibovitz AND faux Christo drapery! Only in New York and only with the New York Times. (or so they want you to think). It's entertaining, but so is the Port Authority.

    Why did the construction crews hang drapes?

    The "drapes" on the higher floors are where the crews from Patti & Sons are spraying fire-proofing on the exposed steel (to be enclosed).

    The "drapes" on the lower floors at the corners and on the 8th Ave. facade are enclosures for where they are painting the steel that will remain exposed.

    ^ Cool info, thanks. Just curious, how did you learn that?
