    by the time this is completed Mr. Mayor will have pushed through his (secret?) plan ala Santa Monica whereby NO smoking is allowed in City Parks -- which includes Father Duffy Square.

    Problem solved! (drat, as I love a good smoke)

    I like the design - then again, I liked it 6 years ago when they announced it.

    The statue will be like a giant spectator standing in the front row and obstructing many views of the stage.

    The statue is kind of interesting in this setting. I like the weird juxtapostion.

    It's been there for years -- and hasn't seemed to spoil the party so far.

    And it's the place where the Times Square Christmas Tree shows up every year:
