As part of the scheme that allowed the glass cocoon of the Cooper Square Hotel to rise on the Bowery, the Peck/Moss Group are revamping the old brick home of long-time resident and poet Hettie Jones. The lower floors of that old pile of bricks are being wrapped in a box of glass which will house some sort of bar or play pen for the hotel's guests. Whatever this box becomes rest assured that there will be food and drink aplenty. Perhaps it'll be the perfect place for feuding friends to bury the hatchet, let bygones be bygones and learn how to play well with others. As for further surprises that architect Carlos Zapata has in store for Ms. Jones and this little corner of the Bowery, we'll just have to wait and see.
