Daily Grumble

Seriously, Lincoln Center?
Preservationists who have voiced concern over the changes being made to Lincoln Center in its redevelopment may be alarmed to learn about one in particular: The centerpiece of the performing arts complex, its plaza fountain, is not only being replaced, but its water effects are now being “choreographed” as well. The firm doing it is also responsible for a water extravaganza set to Broadway, pop and operatic tunes at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas and the nearby volcano of water, fire and light outside the MGM Mirage.
The original fountain was designed by Philip Johnson, no less. And the mallification of NYC continues.
