New York- The New York City Public Library is to undergo construction starting immediately. The restoration is said to last three years and will improve the overall look of facade, stairs and plaza. According to the Library officials, the project is expected to be finished by 2011; just in time for its centennial. One of their goals is to make the building more attractive in the nighttime and to restore its original marble white grandeur.

The 50 million restoration has already started and passers-by can actually see some parts of the building already covered in netting and the first set of scaffolding is scheduled for its appearance in February of 2008.

The New York City Public Library dates back to about 100 years ago, when a handful of people came up with a vision. With millions and millions of users, building a library was essential to many native New Yorkers. Surprisingly, it is a privately managed, non-for-profit organization that has been helping New Yorkers learn for many years, not to mention; it is a National Public Landmark. All libraries in the New York City Public Library system is free of charge to all.

Stick around until 2011 to witness a transformation of the New York City Public Library, you won’t be disappointed!



StubHub News

If you are a NY Giants or a NY Jets fan, there will be a quicker & easier way to get tickets to the games next season. The ever-popular, eBay owned, has teamed up with Ticketmaster to sell NFL tickets.  Though prices might be marked up, it will be easier to search for seats.

According to Mashable:  “The problem with Ticketmaster is readily apparent when doing a search for NFL tickets. For example, I tried both StubHub and for tickets to this Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins, and Ticketmaster (which powers ticket sales for the Patriots) yielded 0 results, while StubHub at the moment has 357 tickets available, all at considerable mark-up to face value.”



According to Fox News, themselves:

NEW YORK — A small chemical explosion occurred Monday in the corporate headquarters of News Corp., which houses the FOX News Channel, in midtown Manhattan.

The mid-morning incident happened on the building’s 45th floor, which houses mechanical systems, and was reportedly caused by a chemical reaction between two agents.

Three floors were evacuated, but the explosion did not affect the FOX News Channel, which continued to broadcast without incident.

One person was injured, officials said.
