I’m still not sure what the deal is with this building. My guess is that it’s an atelier for artists, since the PS1 is right next door. Update: This is of course the 5 Pointz building, and it continues to have ever evolving art on the outside.

The MTA is doing something for over a year now, but every day I drive by with the subway, it just looks like a crane playground, with no real work done. Or a place where you could get your crane drivers license. Or just bulldozing for fun? A complete mystery, like most of the MTA’s …

Amazing view from up there and to our surprise and delight – tons of butterflies. I have no idea what kind of ecosystem supports them but they were pretty and welcome sight. …
