Toy Tower's Revenge

Vanishing New York dropped by Day Two?chainsaw day?of the Parks Department's dismantling of the Tower of Toys, and apparently Eddie Boros' wooden sculpture is not going quietly into the East Village night: "The man with the chainsaw pulled on a hobby horse and the animal refused to budge. He tugged a board and was confounded. He placed a few strategic cuts, sending down a shower of golden sawdust. He tugged again. The sculpture resisted. He cut again. Withholding, restrained, the tower surrendered a few bits and pieces, which the man sent plummeting with a crash to the garden below." [VNY; previously]
