I recall Hawkeye did not like this sculpture. I don't mind it. It is quite pretty at night. It is in front of the recently completed Lucient apartment building. It looks very nice inside, well the foyer does and what else can be seen from the outside looking in.
I have heard that before a bank will lend a developer money for construction of a building like Lucient, that eighty per cent of the apartments had to be presold before building could commence. Going by the visisble occupancy on our side of the building, I would guess something less than 20 per cent are sold. Very odd.
Last night I went out to to a snap of the sculpture at night and thought I would take this one of the foyer too. The concierge must have been watching me on CCTV as he was straight out to investigate my intentions. Really, he just wanted me to buy and apartment and suggested I make an appointment. I pointed. We live there, in the cheap seats. No need to move.
