The event includes the return of Jim Power's refurbished mosaic light poles to the area.
A Community Advisory went out on Tuesday noting that the Alamo/cube was returning to Astor Place yesterday.
By 10 a.m. yesterday, we heard that it wasn't going to happen... some logistical issues.
At 1:31 p.m., the Community Construction Liaison for the Reconstruction of Astor Place and Cooper Square sent out an email with an apology and the following Community Advisory...
"The procedure for its return will be rescheduled for a later date to occur when we are confident the process will happen as seamlessly as possible."
The Alamo has been gone now for safekeeping and refurbishing for 22 months. Hopefully it isn't lost.
Who needs a cube when we've got boulders!
something is off here---my guess is they accidentally trashed the cube, and are delaying the "installation" until they come up with an excuse as to why it won't be returning!
Oh, look, Times Square South. Bleecch. The anonymizing of Manhattan continues apace.
Remember the Alamo, ahh, the Cube!
I wonder if the Committee will clean up the sty because of some delays with the contractors.
"later date" aka: our numbskull contractors disassembled it and can't find the pieces to put it back together, so.. we will be returning it to it's rightful spot some time in the far-near future.. at some other time.
I'm sure there's a good reason. Not everything is a reason to invent a conspiracy.
The truck bringing it back got a flat?
Astor Alive....I just hope that taxpayer money wasn't wasted on this "event." There was nothing redeeming or worthwhile. The only good thing that came out of this event is that two dozen trash cans were finally delivered and placed around the area. For months and months residents were forced to live with garbage on every sidewalk all around the new pedestrian spaces. So at least we got something out of this silly use of the space.
The Alamo is lost. Socks deli is lost. Alt Coffee is lost. Leshkos is lost. Eightball is lost. Liquid Lounge is lost. 7A is lost. Lakefront Lounge is lost. Life Cafe is lost. Max is lost. Leopard Lounge is lost. Mamas is lost. Sals pizza is lost. The old Sidewalk cafe is lost. On and on and on.
