Jr #welterweight champion Danny “Swift” Garcia beat Zab “Super” Judah in a 12 round unanimous decision at #BarclaysCenter in #Brooklyn on Sat night. We had a #VIP suite which was cool. I miss going to the fights. But the era of big #boxing is gone. RIP #LeRoyNeiman, smoking cigars and 15th round knockouts.
No, it’s not a @NASA satellite image of an approaching alien ship. This is the #bronze plated, former American @FolkArtMuseum on West 53rd. Designed new and opened in 2011 to much architectural acclaim. Sadly, the museum defaulted, the @MoMA purchased it and this month is demolishing it to erect one of the tallest towers (also beautiful) in NYC. So bizarre. So sad. The treasures this city has buried.
I hope when the #NYIslanders move to Brooklyn their #IceGirls are on the bus. I don’t get it, but they’re just retro trashy enough to be cool. Well, at least they could be. Kind of like 1950s ring girls in boxing, but not quite as classic.
After a 6 month delay in construction (to source, design, fabricate, install steel), we are moving again! Over 50 pieces of steel columns and beams arrived Monday. About half of it was lifted temporarily into place by a 120 ft crane. It will be bolted, welded, shimmed and leveled over the next few weeks. More photos to come at www.catskillconversion.com
