Where Eddie's Tower of Toys once stood

As you probably remember, workers dismantled The Tower of Toys — created by Eddie Boros in the community garden at Sixth Street and Avenue B — back in May 2008.



Earlier this fall, a new arbor went up very near where Eddie's iconic tower once stood. Seeing this new structure gives me pause every time.



I keep waiting for this to get taller... with the addition of stuffed animals and what not ... But this structure is nice and clean and functional... and not much to look at... kind of like parts on NYC today...

It's sedate. It's genteel. It's bloodless. Which New York City was never, ever supposed to be unless you were on the Upper East Side.

There will probably be vines on it by spring. Have you checked out the new fish pond in there? The turtles must love it!

I think Lisa hit the nail on the head with her comment.

I call on all readers in the area to strap a stuffed animal to the new arbor. :) I'll visit the nearest dollar store and see if I can find one to perhaps kick things off?
