    A gargoyle seems to have been decapitated. Wonder what could have caused that...

    Good news: Ridiculously narrow sidewalk is being widened. About triple width in front of the hotel and 90 West, with a loading lane.

    Bad news: That's a tower under wraps, to support an overhead truss spanning the roadway.

    Photon torpedoes?

    Is the tower permanent?

    That tower is for an elevator for the new "temporary" pedestrian bridge. They are going to create an opening in the 4th or 5th window from the end, over the future median, and move people south around 90 West St. Then they can dismantle the old structure and excavate for the Vehicle Security Center.

    Is that the drilling going on just off the right of the photo?

    Eventually isn't there supposed to be some sort of vehicle ramp right in front of the building?
