Seen & Heard: The Salt Shed Is Fully Exposed

••• The plywood around the Spring Street Salt Shed has come down, and the building looks marvelous. There was initially talk of a “glazed moat illuminated at night,” but I didn’t see any evidence of such a thing (unless the grating around the building has lights underneath).

••• It’s nice to see that Frank Stella wrote a letter on behalf of the Tribeca Trust’s efforts to expand the historic districts before it’s too late.

  1. Can they not make the salt shed exterior surface a rock climbing wall open to the public (or operated by a third party rock climbing course company = more $ for government)? It would be an amazing dual use for the structure, and the holes in the concrete almost look like they were ready made for rock wall features and obstacles…
