    Very life-in-motion snatching.

    From the series "Crossing Broadway". (Although it's Houston in the first picture...)

    Default Grand / Wooster Roof Top

    Is this a new outdoor sculpture that has been installed on a rooftop in SoHo (on Wooster Street just south of Grand)?

    Alas, no ...

    It is a mock-up of a hoped-for "roof-top addition" (aka penthouse). The Landmarks Commission requires "site-line" studies to show the visual impact of proposed additions within the SoHo Historic District. All sorts of different materials are used to build the mock-ups, which are then photographed and presented to LPC as part of the owner's application.

    In this case someone has added a twist: The "shoes" seen hanging from the wire in the first pic are not real shoes, but rather cardboard cut-outs that have been tied together and tossed over the wire!

    Voila! The mundane transformed ...

    What a crock! None of those scenes are worth honoring. Any building that's built (hopefully soon) in the vacancy that makes these views possible will obscure the rooftop addition anyway. Don't these busybodies have anything better to do? They could go out and do something useful. Maybe dish out food in a soup kitchen?

    whoa, ablarc ...

    The site line studies are for the purpose of showing what will be visible from the sidewalk across the street from the front of the building ... a position where none of the proposed structure in those pics will be visible.

    At this time there is no proposal for the small parking lot to the north of this building (that's where you'll find the "shoes on the wire"). There is, however, a proposal that has been approved for the site on the large parking lot to the south (and which sits across West Broadway from the SoHo Grand Hotel).

    The point of "site line" studies is to avoid POS such as can be found along Church Street just north of the WTC, certain sites along Broadway in what is now NoHo and -- perhaps most egregiously -- this one FUGLY POS on Fulton near City Hall (a building which is not under the jurisdiction of the LPC):

    ^ Yeah, but they don't need full-size wire-frame models to know the difference between a project that's Ok and one that isn't. This is imperial government.
