City Snapshot

This is the new New York City bus shelter that's been popping up all over town. Its sleek and modern appearance seems to dress up any street corner although Scott says it was clearly designed by someone who has never had to wait for bus. He points to the gap between the shelter wall and the slightly pitched roof which offers no protection to commuters from wind and rain. I don't know. I think it looks cool. But then I never take the bus.

Being a (*ahem* former-and-sometimes-current bus-rider- *ahem*) I agree with Scott. When you rely on mass transportaion to get around, pretty "shelters" don't amount to much. Protect me from wind and rain or don't even bother. I'm pretty sure the designer of this "shelter" doesn't take the bus, either.

My two cents. Adjusted for inflation. :)

Then again, at least y'all have shelters. In New Orleans we don't even get benches.

I like the design of it (from an architectural perspective). :)
