Crazy public art project update: The Encampment, artist Thom Sokoloski's homage to the history of Roosevelt Island as expressed through 100 illuminated tents set up on the island's southern tip, will light up at 7pm tonight for the first time. The installation will be viewable from both banks of the East River, or you can actually go to Roosevelt Island and see what's in the tents. Like we said, the installation will be viewable from both banks of the East River.
