Rosario Dawson Shovels Dirt; MoMA Opens the Architecture Vault

EAST VILLAGE?We don't usually run photos from ceremonial groundbreakings, but they're rarely this adorable! Today the Lower East Side Girls Club kicked off its 12-story clubhouse/apartment building on Avenue D in a ceremony complete with plastic pink construction helmets and an appearance by actress Rosario Dawson. Is it possible to look at this photo and not think, "Yay!!!!!" It is not. [CurbedWire Inbox]

MIDTOWN?Hey architecture nerds, on November 10 the Museum of Modern Art will open a new exhibition called Building Collections: Recent Acquisitions of Architecture. It will highlight acquisitions made since 2005, from a roster of talent that includes Louis Sullivan, Le Corbusier, Jean Tschumi, Paulo Mendes da Rocha, UN Studio and more. For many of the models and drawings, it will be the first time they are being exhibited. It runs through May. [CurbedWire Inbox]
