Searching for safety at 60 Hudson and beyond
This weeks decision by the Board of Standards and Appeals to legalize the illegal storage of diesel fuel at 60 Hudson St. highlights the desperate need for the city to take a first look at how best to regulate telecom buildings. That was the reaction of the Tribeca group that led the fight against the building, Neighbors against NOISE, which is right once again.

A perfect mirror
Mud Island sits in the Mississippi River outside of Memphis, between Tennessee and Arkansas, You get there by a monorail that snails across the wide river and affords you a view of the vast water and the city of Memphis. On Mud Island is the Mississippi River Museum, a wonder of curatorial ingenuity.

By Lincoln Anderson
While hundreds of fans were still rocking in punk ecstasy to Patti Smith at her closed-to-the-media farewell show inside CBGB early Monday morning, there was no mistaking the feeling among those who couldn't get inside. Maybe for them, at a remove from the Smith band's driving three-chord rhythms and feedback, reality had set in earlier.

By Jerry Tallmer

A doomed expedition that sails on stage
By Tonia Steed
