And, with each new “shingle,” a new feature appears.
This time, viewable from Taras Shevchenko Place, it’s the use of the Faberge egg by architect Thomas Mayne of Morphosis.
But rather than looking in this egg, you get to see a reflection of the old East Village and the St. George Ukrainian Catholic Church.
Given the architectural reveals that seem to occur every week, or so, at the new Cooper Union site, we would not be surprised to see Faberge morph into a Magic 8-ball next week. We’ll try again later.
Meanwhile, Jim Power’s planter and Alamo have taken back the plaza on Astor Place after the New York Historical Society removed its informative, historical sign about Abe Lincoln and Peter Cooper after testing the idea for a few weeks.
And gleaming towers cast shadows over a village.
