The Broadway Malls
This is actually one of the better
sections of the Broadway malls. However, these planters look like the anti-terrorist
barricades they have outside important buildings in Washington. Other sections
of the malls have degenerated into unkempt vegetation surrounded by wire
entaglements that collect garbage. Fortunately, the Broadway Malls Association
is now working on the problem.
Update 8/00: Those anti-terrorist planters
have been removed by the City Dept. of Transportation. Hurray! The determination
of those who have been pressuring them to do this has paid off, proving
that such efforts are worthwhile. Columbia University has taken responsibility
for planting and maintaining the mall between 114th to 116th Sts.
