Landmark West, the Upper West Side preservation group, has trained a webcam on the facade of 2 Columbus Circle. As scaffolding rises on the facade, so does rage, as this email from a Curbed reader makes clear: "As of 8:30 a.m. this morning the scaffolding is about 1/3 of the way up the main facade. Watching a landmark being prepared for execution, minute by minute, on your computer screen, is a powerful and painful preservation first. It is enraging."
