••• On the One World Observatory elevators at 1 World Trade Center: “From the moment the doors close until they reopen 47 seconds later on the 102nd floor, a seemingly three-dimensional time-lapse panorama will unfold on three walls of the elevator cabs, as if one were witnessing 515 years of history unfolding at the tip of Manhattan Island.” —New York Times



  1. On the elevator ride to the Observatory – very impressive both conceptually and executionally.

  2. The south side of No.Moore St. between Hudson and Varick Sts. is hands down the most disgusting stretch of sidewalk in TriBeCa with trashbags, garbage, and debris everywhere – the perfect rat magnet. What can be done about it? Something needs to be. At least the 403 Greenwich rats are there because of construction. What’s the excuse for No.Moore St? None/no excuse. Slobs.

  3. The 28 N Moore St construction (which was supposed to be completed in August 2014) is the culprit. There are rats the size of puppies living in there.

  4. How about the constant ‘tornado of trash’ in front of the old Josephine space?

    It was disgusting before that August 2014 construction which has only exacerbated the filth but I thank you for pointing out the construction as one reason for that stretch of sidewalk being disgusting.


    Blame that trashnado (my word :) on thoughtless inconsiderate people (mostly neighborhood workers) who are too lazy to throw their lunch/snack garbage into a garbage bin.
