I went last August and currently planning another trip in May 2017. Hopefully the Rose Room will be open in the NY Public Library by then.
Last August I got off the subway in Chinatown just to walk to Tribeca and see the firehouse in all its glory. No scaffolding then but when walking down Varick St. all I could see is that monstrosity they are building behind it. Is that thing finished yet? Looks like it was about 8o stories, looming over the firehouse. You could catch a glimpse of it in ATC when they first see the old GB HQ.
No, that monster of a building is still under construction, at least last I saw.
I'll be back working in the city probably later on this week. I'm gonna try to convince the guys to drive past the firehouse so I can snap some pictures for you guys. Sucks, I'm working at the old Time Life / Rockefeller building off of broadway (5th and 51st) so its kind of out of the way to drive past the firehouse.
It was great when we were working at Tisch Hall at NYU, we would drive past HL8 every damn day. My co-workers would wake me up every morning when we would drive past it on the way in and every afternoon when we would drive past it on the way home. Yeah, I never drove and always slept lol. Gotta love construction!
