Is that supposed to be a building or what?

One of the most interesting new buildings I’ve seen recently is the new Cooper Union building in the East Village.

Northeast Corridor photos

This weekend I rode the Amtrak from New York to Baltimore and back, as I’ve done many times. This time I took some snapshots of some of the beautiful/ugly urban decay visible through the windows of the train.

The Bimbo truck

Grupo Bimbo is big Mexican bread company. Their bread is sold in some shops in Brooklyn, and I often see their friendly delivery truck zipping around my neighborhood.

Whatever your day brings, at least you don’t have to ride around the city around in a vehicle with the word BIMBO on the side of it.

After years of delay, steel is finally rising above grade at the World Trade Center site. March 17, 2009.

(Update: That steel is going to become the Freedom Tower, which will be New York’s tallest building… assuming they finish it. There’s a story in the Wall Street Journal today about the progress at the WTC site, and it’s not reassuring: Developer of 9/11 Site Seeks Aid.)

New subway station!

Have you ever seen a New York City subway station this clean?

Seen here is the new South Ferry station in Lower Manhattan on the Seventh Avenue line, which on Monday became the first new subway station to open in New York City since 1989. It’s not actually a new stop; it merely replaces the old South Ferry station. The old station was over 100 years old and built on a looping turnaround, and thus only able to accommodate half of a 10-car subway train. (Conductors announced that riders had to be in the first five cars if they wanted to get out there.) The turnabout is closed, and the new station includes two tracks for arriving and departing 1 Trains, as well as a connection to the Broadway line (R and W trains). More pictures below.
