Times Square Stairway to Nowhere: Spring '08 Looking Good

Remember the Stairway to Nowhere, also known as the redo of the TKTS booth? Yesterday, we had a Rumblings question about it. Today, the Daily News offers up a quick answer: It's almost there, assuming that next spring counts as "almost." It was supposed to be done in time for New Year's (2007), but the News recounts a sad tale of woe that includes a glass supplier that went bankrupt and engineering that "turned out to be much more difficult than expected." Fear not, however, workers have been spotted with "welding torches and surveying tools" building the metal base for the Austrian glass beams that are arriving "in the next few weeks." Promise.
