Morning View - Astor Place Cube

In the middle of a traffic island at Astor Place is "The Cube", a 1968 sculpture by Tony Rosenthal. The sculpture (whose real, but less popular title is "Alamo"), can be spun on its axis with just a little effort, something I learned early this summer as I almost wiped out a small group of Japanese goth kids sitting on the other side. The sculpture was once turned into a giant Rubik's Cube in a prank that has become rather legendary at NYU.
