Preparations continue apace for the almost-imminent opening of the new South Ferry subway station at the foot of Manhattan, as evidenced by the steam roller action in front of the Whitehall Terminal. Large swaths of asphalt have been laid down across Peter Minuit Plaza, which will soon sport its own Dutch treat. One big surprise is the new arched canopy at the south end of the plaza. Panels of glass supported by ribs of stainless steel echo the crown of Lady Liberty across the harbor and will protect travelers as they enter and exit the artsy station below. Here's hoping that gaps of all sorts are fixed pronto.
