  • So Long to Ai Weiwei’s ‘Good Fence’ at Cooper Union [EV Grieve]: Today is removing day at Cooper Union for the Ai Weiwei installation … part of a citywide project in collaboration with the Public Art Fund titled “Good Fences Make Good Neighbors.” (Thanks to EVG reader Riian Kant-McCormick for this photo!)


  • New Yorkers eat lunch at their desks more often than any other city [TimeOut New York]: In some great news for Just Salad and other fast casual to-go restaurants with mildly depressing names, Time Out’s 2018 City Index survey has revealed that New Yorkers eat lunch at their desks more than any other American city at 39 times a year.
  • Greenpoint’s Astral Apartments: A Building Ahead of Its Time [Brownstoner]: Charles Pratt was one of the entrepreneurial wizards of 19th century Brooklyn. He was born in Massachusetts in 1830, one of 11 children of a carpenter and his wife. The family was poor, so Charles went to work as a boy, receiving only a few years of primary education — just enough to learn to read, write and do sums.
