Yesterday afternoon, a crew was busy planting trees, shrubs and plants in front of 360 Smith Street, the new 7 story building at First Place. The greenery does make the building just a bit more palatable.
The subway plaza to the F train station which is slate to reopen is looking almost done now. The plaza has been paved with slate and planters have been installed to separate the entrance to the building.
Miraculously, some of the plaza's original trees have survived. If I am not mistaken, they were mimosa trees. Does anyone remember?
