The vessel looks like some alien space ship.

Well, it's more elegant than the London Orbit, but it's no Eiffel Tower as was promised. Something more industrial might have suited the site better and reflected the style of New York more. It looks like something from the 70s.

Then again the whole Hudson Yards concept could have stepped out of 70s urban renewal schemes.

Love the sculpture- it should really add more life to the square since it's also an observation deck. Lots of great designs out recently.

Midtown - New York Public Library

After two-year renovation, New York Public Library’s historic Rose Main Reading Room will reopen October 5th








Quote:
The $12 million project, managed by Tishman Construction Corporation, came about in May 2014 when an ornamental plaster rosette fell 52 feet from the Reading Room’s ceiling. In addition to recreating and replacing this piece, all 900 rosettes in both rooms were reinforced with steel cables. Other work included the recreation of a 27′ x 33′ James Wall Finn mural on the ceiling of the Catalog Room and the restoration of the chandeliers.

...And while this work was going on, the Library was also busy moving materials into a new, $23 million state-of-the-art storage facility below Bryant Park. This project was conceived after controversy over a previous plan to move the research collection to New Jersey and will be complete by early 2017. The new space will hold 4.3 million research volumes, allowing the Library to “fill over 90 percent of research requests with materials located on-site.” To do this, they also installed a $2.6 million modern conveyor system that uses 24 individual cars to bring these materials up from storage to the Rose Main Reading Room.

I actually had the same thought but that's part of why I like it. It reminds me of the crazy bold urban experiments they used to do decades ago. They may or may not age well, but they become iconic. I think the interactive element with all the stairs will make it a landmark. That said it is kind of menacing in a way (I think it's the color?)...it gives me a weird Bladerunner vibe.

Looking at things like this make me despair at the state of today's architecture.

La Central & Coney Island Development

Huge Bronx affordable housing project gets City Council approval
http://ny.curbed.com/2016/9/15/12928...uncil-approval

A week after the City Council’s planning subcommittee approved an affordable housing project that would bring close to 1,000 apartments to Melrose in the Bronx, the full Council has jumped on board as well. On Wednesday, the Council approved the plan to bring 992 apartments to the neighborhood spread out over five buildings in a project that will be known as La Central, the New York Daily News reports.

This project will also bring along with it a skate park, a YMCA, and an observatory for the Bronx High School of Science.

New Coney Island development will bring 135 apartments to the area

By Tanay Warerkar Sep 14, 2016

Developers Concern for Independent Living (who specialize in supportive housing) and Georgica Green Ventures are partnering on a housing project that will bring 135 apartments to a currently empty plot at the intersection of West 21st Street and Surf Avenue.

Of the 135 apartments, 82 apartments will be reserved for homeless veterans. The rest will be made available to people making less than 60 percent of the area median income. The apartments will be divided into studios and one-bedrooms.

It will take between 18-20 months for construction on the project to wrap up, and this particular project is part of a larger effort on part of the developer to bring 400 affordable and market rate apartments to Coney Island.
