New, 4 comments

HUDSON RIVER?A team of volunteers rowed out from Pier 49 to install 217 LED lights on top of posts in the Hudson River. The point? "Reflecting the Stars," a public art project with the goal of "recreating a night sky with visible stars on the Hudson River." After a one-day delay thanks to Hurricane Irene, the project's opening reception is tonight at sunset, 7:17 p.m. sharp. Special guest: Charles Renfro of Diller Sofidio + Renfro. [CurbedWire Inbox]

CHINATOWN?State Senator Daniel Squadron, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, and City Council Member Margaret Chin all got together at 15 St. James Place this afternoon to honor the building's residents, who had a 90 percent evacuation rate leading up to Hurricane Irene. That was the highest evacuation rate in any of the city's public housing developments within Zone A. Hey, if we'd known there were going to be prizes? [CurbedWire Inbox]
