The New York Times has an architectural review of the glass canopy that covers the alley (North End Way). Click here for the story.
“That’s the power of architecture. I’ve stopped by on different days, morning and evening. Cafe tables spill from the restaurants. Shake Shack anchors the north end of the arcade, at Murray Street, and it’s always packed with kids coming from the ball fields next door. Rogers Marvel, the New York firm, designed a striking wine shop, Vintry, all white and low, with sexy Jetsons curves. People also take breathers near Vesey Street on the granite bench by Ken Smith, who also came up with the low, lighted walls dividing the cafe tables from pedestrian traffic…But mostly everybody gawks at the canopy.”
