With all the attention on that little project going up across West Street, the new and nearly complete 43-story Goldman Sachs headquarters, a gift from taxpayers to Battery Park City, had been getting little attention until today's security kerfuffle. Which is no doubt just fine with the notoriously tight-lipped Goldman gang. It's that shyness that might be why the reconstructed pedestrian passageway between Vesey and
Worth Murray Streets recently reopened without fanfare. The glass-covered gallery offers views into the very colorful entry of the new Goldman building itself, decked out in various shades of orange. The walkway also gives access upstairs to shoe-shopping maniacs with a need to feed. Not to mention a way to watch a movie and, one day, maybe practice some putting. And isn't that every Goldman banker's dream?
