In the LA Times, Christopher Hawthorne offers his "Top 10" list of architectural moments of 2009. In the #2 spot is the new Alice Tully. The pedestrian mall on Broadway is #5 and the High Line is #6. These are great choices, and I am reminded of how many photos I have of these places. Thank God for digital or our home would be filled to the ceiling with boxes of photos and reels of what used to be called "home movies".
I made this video on Memorial Day, May 25, 2009, recording the celebration of the opening of the Broadway pedestrian mall.
