    I simply love this line “The building roots them, as a stalwart anchor in a turbulent sea.” I need to slow down more and take time to read the NY Times again.

    That was a wonderfully written article, and a fascinating story. Thanks for sharing it.

    Of course, it makes me daydream about having my dream library some day. Which, naturally, would have shelves high enough to merit a rolling ladder.

    god, I love that article, and it makes me so sad, too. i lived in SoHo in the late 70’s – I probably walked past their building a hundred times without knowing what it was.
