Remembering the Alamo, Astor Place, NYC

40.729869,-73.990974
A typically busy time on a winter's evening at Astor Place in New York City is mysteriously still. The monumental sculpture and buildings stand vigilant over the scene of abandoned sidewalks and bikes.

I remember meeting with friends at "The Cube" and giving it a spin as a teenager."Spin the Cube, make a wish." By looking at it, you would never think it spins. "The Cube," really named, "The Alamo," was sculpted by Tony Rosenthal, who died at age 94, one year before this photo was taken.
