5. Is the Astor Place Cube Returning?

There were many false prophesies for the return of the Astor Place Cube this summer. The latest we have from the New York City Department of Design and Construction, which is overseeing the cube’s rehabilitation somewhere in New Jersey, is “As of now we are still anticipating early Fall for the return of the cube.” We hope that means September, but they wouldn’t give us any more specifics than that.

In the meantime, check out a secret version of the Astor Place cube that we tracked down in a private collection in Westchester.
