Quick update to the 55 Water Street Park that's being dedicated this evening. Tropolism (who, in a life before blogging, directed the design contest for the park in 2002) points us to this glorious view from the plaza. The glass structure to the left? The Beacon of Progress, which apparently used to be called just "The Beacon." Notes Tropolism, "I have no idea how 'The Beacon' became 'The Beacon of Progress.' Progress toward what?"
