    I like the red - a basic primary color. The simple hue gives it a playful, fun quality. Fits Times Square.

    It would be cool if the steps somehow cascaded to the east and west sides at the bottom as well, but on the other hand the current arrangement offers more refuge to anyone who uses them just to sit and chill. Besides, the spot at the top will be an interesting location to shoot photos from.

    I hope they get creative with garbage bins. That place always piled with garbage in the planter boxes.

    Maybe they can cut-out some holes in the stair-ramp and have containers up there that drop direct into bins beneath ...

    Hate it when people leave their trash all about -- but sometimes it's simply because there aren't adequate numbers of garbage bins nearby.

    The foundation for the stair / booth area is completed -- plumbing / electric connections are in as well.

    Now they're working on the surrounding sidewalk area including new steel structure for the grills / vents tothe subway lines below. Lots to do there.

    I asked one of the contractors ("La Strada") on site today when we could expect to see something rising on the site.

    He said " a couple of months" ...

    Are hey planning on staffing the stairs with a police officer presence to ward off the bums and the destitute people? I can just see this becoming the "it" spot for the homeless beggars.

    I don't think that will happen here. There will be so much activity up and down, the lights, loud people, tourists with cameras stepping over, honking horns all around, midtown's homeless probably prefer somewhat quieter placess to set up roost.

    I can't remember the last time I saw a homeless man around Times Square.

    Maybe it will become the main market for the 100s of Africans that sell bags, glasses, etc in Times Square!

    Wouldnt that be special - "little Niarobi"
