Yesterday on Roosevelt Island
Ribbon cutting ceremony for Cornell Tech campus, opened on Roosevelt Island. Mike Bloomberg among the guests of honor.
The new campus Cornell Tech built by Cornell University on Roosevelt Island was officially opened today.
I was asked by theWIRE to take pictures of a hearing in front of the New York City Planning Commission, regarding building of the new Cornell-Technion campus on Roosevelt Island. Several people presented their pros and cons about this very interesting project. If everything goes well and as planned, Manhattan will have a brand new, state of the art engineering school by 2017. For me it was a very interesting experience, as an amateur press photographer, which resulted in more “Manhattan Faces” images for my blog.
