Change comes slowly, at least psychologically, to Greenwich Village, which, despite the double-decker tourist buses and the crowds (still) lining up for cupcakes in front of the Magnolia Bakery, persists in thinking of itself as a sleepy bohemian enclave.
So the design for the ’s 365,000-square-foot University Center on Fifth Avenue between 13th and 14th Streets, which was approved by the school’s trustees on Wednesday, may get more than a few people shaking their fists.
Contrast. Nicolai Ouroussoff, January 20, 2010:
The cultural watchdogs of Boston don’t take well to change. And the museum, whose collections haven’t moved since 1924, is one of the most beloved art institutions in this city. Its eclectic array of artworks from the Middle Ages to the early-20th century, displayed in a dazzling faux-Venetian palazzo, stands alongside those in the Frick Collection in Manhattan and the Getty Villa in Malibu, Calif., as a rare — and intimate — expression of a single collector’s vision.Well, the preservationists should put away their torches and pitchforks.
Just couldn’t resist.
