NYC: November 2005 Archives

That's a lot of money! After losing their space at the (theoretically to be built someday) World Trade Center site, this news appears today in Crain's New York:

In a boost to arts downtown, the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. said it plans to give the Drawing Center up to $10 million for a new home and will begin considering grants of another $35 million.


Separately, the LMDC said it will start accepting applications from cultural institutions and individuals for $35 million in arts grants. The announcement comes nearly five months after the city and state earmarked $45 million for cultural purposes out of the $800 million of federal money dedicated to Lower Manhattan development.

Today James and I, along with our friend Dan, visited the Top of the Rock, otherwise know as the top of the RCA (now GE) building. Unfortunately the days of deck chairs are over, but we still had fun.
