1. Once or twice a week, The Record print edition puts the Main and Sports sections inside a 1.5-page overlay ad, where the top of the half front pages are copies of the real pages and line up perfectly with the actual front pages. Didn't quite line up today.


2. "phrase" - not "phase"


3. "too" - not "to" (how did they manage to get it right just 3 words later?)

OK - I see it now. The rendering of that "driveway" and the Camden stores in the lower left - which look like they've also gone through rehab - throw things off.

I think the renderers need an upgrade. Remember that image of the 395 Main project that says "359"?

The entrance is mid-block on E. Camden.  Across the street is E. Camden and Moore (Library).  Yes, you circled the entrance.

What looks like a street on the north side of E. Camden is a driveway for the project and/or stores on Main St. I forget. 

Does this help?

I think we've all seen this image and it's still not clear. Are you referring to the circled area under "THE CURRENT" sign as being the entrance? If not, please circle the actual entrance. If so, that corner location could only be in two places: the corner of E. Camden and Main - which isn't going to happen, but would place the entrance on E. Camden - or the corner of River and E. Camden, which would place the entrance on River St. If the latter, that street DOES look a bit wider than the side street and it would make sense that the sign for The Current on River be on the River St side.

It would help if the artist drew the streets to scale and/or - as Homer suggested - superimposed the street names on the rendering.

This image shows the East Camden Street entrance.

The renderings are somewhat confusing if you look at the Hekemian website. Perhaps the editor/ administrator of this website can ask Mr. Hekemian to superimpose the street names onto the renderings to clarify what building elevations front which streets. Should be simple enough.

Good to know, but if all the press releases say it's on River St, what would prompt someone to do a Google search to find out what street it's on?

the entrance to the building IS on East Camden St... as close as it can be to Main St....   a 6 second google search would have shown that...

I was thinking the same thing.  The front should be on East Camden Street for the reasons you stated and one more, which is that the city should want to encourage pedestrian traffic from the lobby entrance of this building to Main Street. Putting the entrance around the corner on River Street is not only gritty and unattractive from a tenant's standpoint, it's too far from the shops on Main Street.

1. Why did the first question get a question mark and the second one didn't?


2. So where's the statement?


3. Ever hang a picture? Basically, you put it in a frame and hang it from a nail in the wall. I doubt that this "skyscraper-size image" - as the article refers to it - is hanging from a wall, as the caption infers.

The writer of the article is Steve Popper, who's written for The Record for quite a while. He is not a staff photographer, as what's under the caption states. He's a writer who covers the Knicks and took a photo while he was near the Garden. It's cheaper than sending a real staff photographer along with him just to take that picture (pictures of the game in The Record were taken by a USA Today photographer).
