Visitor Profile: Treehouses to FDR Memorial

Yesterday, the NY Times ran a profile / Q & A with architect Stephen Martin who is working on the FDR Four Freedoms Memorial now under construction at Roosevelt island's SouthPoint Park and how he came to that project. The story was filed under their "Entry Level" series.

Our Trash Featured in the WSJ

Who would ever think that our trash, Roosevelt Island trash would be featured in an article in the Wall Street Journal. But there it is. Granted our trash is moved underground within an automated vacuum system (yes the AVAC) that is cooler than seeing it pile up on the sidewalk.

If you have not stopped over to RIVAA to check out their Fast Trash exhibit plesae do before it closes as it is worth checking out. Dick Lutz just ran a great article about it in last week's Main Street WIRE.
