Here's something else to be mad at Mayor Bloomberg about: Even when his plows make it to a neighborhood to clear mountains of snow, they mess up the art! Remember "Light Tracks," the manhole-themed piece designed by architect Audrey Matlock that was installed on the West Thames Street cul-de-sac last December? The Broadsheet Daily reports that it got all smashed up by sanitation trucks during the city's last big snowstorm. The Battery Park City Authority has put in a claim with the city to get money for repairs. Yeesh, it's almost as if putting a big piece of art in the middle of the road might result in damage caused by vehicles!
