  • Using Vines to Beautify the West Side Highway By Liam Delaney | December 17, 2012

    New York City can always use more green space. In recent years New Yorkers have been getting creative with how they create their parks - think of the Highline and the upcoming Pier 57 remodel. The latest in this line is a new proposal to beautify the West Side Highway by using vines and waterfalls. The idea comes from New York City architect Laurence Tamaccio, who lives on Riverside Boulevard, and the project is slowly gaining support from Community Board 7 and Upper West Side apartment residents. If everything goes according to plan, residents of buildings such as the Avery and The Heritage at Trump Place will have a brand new green vista to look out on.

  • Public Art Project Envelops Christopher Columbus By Yuan Feng | August 13, 2012

    We’re going to ask you to picture something bizarre. As is well known throughout Manhattan, a massive statue of Christopher Columbus stands proudly in Columbus Circle. Now imagine a massive tower built around the status, with stairs extending to Columbus’ head. And at the top of the stairs, picture a living room complete with a television capable of accommodating 50 people at a time. As you’ve likely figured out by now, such a project is actually on the way towards becoming reality. With funding from the city and design created by Japanese artist Tatzu Nishi, the 13-foot statue is on its way to welcoming 100,000 new visitors to its peak on September 20th, 2012.

  • Unearthing the Secrets of Collect Pond By Yuan Feng | August 10, 2012

    Collect Pond Park, set to be unveiled in Late September, is going to offer a one-acre space complete with the benches, decorated pavement, and fountains that we’ve come to expect in Manhattan parks. But while construction continues aboveground to create this new public space in the Financial District, a rather different story lurks underneath the site. During construction, the New York City Parks Department located an odd series of subterranean walls beneath the park. Upon calling in an independent archaeologist, the mystery was revealed: the walls were part of The Tombs, a former city prison that has been undisturbed for over a hundred years.

  • IHOP on Carmine Street Raises Eyebrows By Yuan Feng | August 06, 2012

    Stretching for 2-and-a-half blocks between Sixth and Seventh Avenue in Greenwich Village, Carmine Street has been called an oasis in Downtown Manhattan. The street has historically enjoyed a reputation of being a romantic and classic area of the city. In recent times, Carmine Street has seen a slew of new developments and changes, including a variety new businesses and residences. The changes to this historic street have not been met without controversy, and indeed, some residents are lamenting the damage done to a classic area of Manhattan. However, most others feel that Carmine Street, rather than being corrupted by modernism, is instead embracing its changes and creating a lively fusion of past and present.

  • NYU 2031 Approved to Both Chagrin and Delight By Yuan Feng | July 27, 2012

    The NYU expansion has taken Manhattan on quite a long and winding road, but the final verdict is here: NYU 2031 is here to stay. By a vote of 44-1, the City Council gave NYU its stamp of approval yesterday, setting into motion a 20-year construction plan that will lead to the creation of four new buildings constituting classrooms, dorm rooms, and office space. Naturally, this plan has been rife with controversy since it was first proposed, and its ultimate approval has proven to be no different. Although NYU claims that the benefits of its plan will far exceed the potential damage of construction, residents of Greenwich Village as well as NYU faculty continue to loudly protest the plan.
