In the News: Seaport TKTS Booth Has Reopened

Solar Impulse Aircraft Photo••• From Notify NYC: “Weather permitting, a solar powered aircraft, operated by Solar Impulse, will conduct an overnight flight from Dulles Airport in Washington, D.C. to JFK Airport, NYC this weekend. Part of this flight involves passing the Statue of Liberty for a photo shoot, accompanied by a helicopter. The aircraft is expected to arrive at the Statue of Liberty at about 11:45 PM on Saturday evening, July 6, 2013, take photos for approximately one hour, and then land at JFK Airport in Queens at 2:00 AM Sunday morning, July 7, 2013. The aircraft operates at a very slow speed of about 25 knots (29 mph).”

Moore, between Hudson and Greenwich, city Department of Design and Construction crews will begin restoring the cobblestone roadway over the next few weeks, with a full road closure to through traffic. Parking also will be suspended, but pedestrian, local, and emergency access will be maintained. Concurrently, trunk-water-main installation will resume on Hudson Street, between Thomas and N. Moore. The MPT will be installed on the east side of those three blocks of Hudson Street, maintaining two lanes of traffic, but suspending parking.” The best shot I have of Hudson construction was taken a while ago….
