Time to notify the fake-drugs-selling chess players in Washington Square Park: Construction on the redesigned piazza della NYU could begin as soon as this spring, after the City Art Commission OK'd the plans. Which specific plans? We can't say, although the fountain-moving and fence-erecting appear to be on. (But what of the storied mounds!?) The Times appears to be as dizzied as we are by all the back-and-forth, and thus deigned to give the story a mere Metro Briefing blurb.
