Re: THE 210 MAIN ROOFTOP SCULPTURE CONSTRUCTION

March 6-11:

The scaffolding contained this tent-like structure, which is now gone. The scaffolding remains, but I couldn't tell you what's changed.

3-11+13-19

1. The yellow thing starts to come off.

2. It's gone and what looks like fourteen horizontal bars remain (currently: eight)

3. More luxury for the future 210 Main tenants! A giant over-the-air TV antenna has been added!

4. The antenna was removed because it didn't have enough rust to match the sculpture. Meanwhile, this huge man shores up the sculpture...............or it could be someone working down the street at The Hole who photobombed my shot.

Current on River - 8


The Hole (whose name should probably be changed soon to 150-170 Main, right?) - 4

1. Liftoff and splashdown from Moore St

2. Splashdown from Main St

3. Half of the site from Moore St includes 210 Main with its new hat.

4. Same as above, but it's a stitch that shows the entire site from Moore (and the hat).

Let's take a stroll up Main St:

149 Main - 3


210 Main - 7

Somebody I know was concerned about front preservation of this building, so this is for you, E.

1-3. Entrance and light fixture intact

4,5. This is the view looking in through the front door all the way back to the Moore St entrance. I just noticed I'm partially in the mirror's reflection. The second image is a zoomed-in version of the first showing workers at the back entrance.

6. The next image was taken through the window that's just south of the main entrance.

7. The first picture the new tenants will take (well, maybe the second)


240 Main - 3

Hey - they got the name on it: "Meridia".

They'd better change it fast:

October 8, 2010: The FDA finally recalled Abbott Laboratories' obesity drug Meridia today. The nail-in-the-coffin was a big new study showing that the drug can increase heart attacks and strokes in high-risk patients.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/robertlangreth/2010/10/08/meridia-recall-shows-how-fda-has-changed/#1e00dd716cd9

This has been known since 2010 - how are the owners not aware of this?
