Here’s what the Untapped Staff is reading in the HQ today:
- Women’s March on NYC Estimated at Over 400,000 [DNAinfo]: An estimated 400,000 people packed the streets of Manhattan on Saturday to march in solidarity following President Donald Trump’s inauguration, city officials said. Organizers had been expecting about 100,000.
- Bjarke Ingels Group Bronx Police Precinct Moves Forward [Curbed]: Nearly a year after plans were revealed for Bjarke Ingels Group’s design for the NYPD’s 40th Police Precinct, the project is finally moving forward. The Danish starchitect’s firm, along with the City’s Department of Design and Construction, has now filed plans for the project, offering a more thorough glimpse at what the new precinct will entail. This precinct is one of the 2016 winners of the NYC Awards for Excellence in Design.
- From Sea Gate to the South Bronx, One Man Walks Ever Block in NYC [Bklyner]: For Matt Green, founder of the blog I’m Just Walkin’, his nearly completed plan to walk every single one of this city’s streets, avenues, and sandy, watery, gravelly, off-the-grid stretches is primarily an act of love more than a comment on the accessibility of the five boroughs.
- Here’s How You Can Own a Piece of Carnegie Deli’s Kitchen [Bowery Boogie]: Dead in the ground just three weeks, the now-shuttered Carnegie Deli is auctioning off all its furnishings and kitchen contents. Too bad the priceless ephemera (framed photographs of celebrity diners) wasn’t treated with the same respect, having been dumped on the sidewalk last week. Also read about the Carnegie Deli massacre of 2001 on Untapped previously.
