Tower o' Garbage

Before the ultra-controversial Hudson Square garbage truck garage can be built, the Sanitation Department has to demolish an old garage on Spring Street, and neighbors are worried about that, too: "The committee asked...about asbestos removal, soil and ground water contamination, and the effect of construction vibration at vulnerable locations nearby included the Glass House residence designed by Philip Johnson and the 207-year-old federal house location of Ear Inn." For once, vibrations at the Urban Glass House will have nothing to do with rocking waterbeds. [Downtown Express]
