One More Reason I'm Glad to be Moving Downtown

In addition to the doubling of living space, it's exciting to watch the rebirth and renewal of Lower Manhattan. Our new home is about 4 blocks away from the World Trade Center site; I'll most likely be walking by it each day on my way to the subway. And new restaurants and shopping centers are opening daily (case in point: Tiffany and Co.). My favorite, though, is the public-use green space that is sprouting left and right.

This Very Cool Thing is being built right now...

(I know. I want to hop on, too. Let's just say the kids need us to go with them. I call the seahorse.)

Super virtual coolness!

that is amazing -- when will it be done?

also, is "dowtown" misspelled or do they call it dowtown because of its proximity to the Dow Jones Industrial?

My hunch is that you forgot the "n" but I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt at this point.

Rats. "Dowtown" is not going to win me any spelling bees.

Thanks, Peter.

Peter, the timeline for the Seaglass Carousel says that it should be finished sometime this year. I'll show you where it is in Battery Park when you come visit.

Looking forward to it!
