building promise

September 9, 2011

So today begins the city’s 10 year anniversary of the 9/11 events.  An odd symmetry for us because ten years ago Madeline started pre-school and yesterday we got her off to high school. Because we have been away for 4 years I think our eyes are open to the dynamic changes that have occurred in the city in the last decade. Most importantly and most impressively is the development and quality of public space. I spoke about the Erie Basin project last week and today I would like to put forward the Pier 6 project by Micheal Van Valkenburgh.  One, I wish had some of those playgrounds when Mad was a little one and two, they are very well made and expansive in their imagination.
