Update on Washington Square Park: Phase II Overview Post : The Status

I’ve planned to write a comprehensive review of Washington Square Park Redesign: Phase II now, that, as of June 2nd, Phase II-A, the Eastern side, is at last open! … There’s so much going on! For the record, I’ll write about it (including the past, encompassing some of the history – what was promised or lost – and present) when Phase II-BChess Plaza and part of SW Quadrant – finally opens. This was initially scheduled to be completed sometime in June, according to the Parks Department, not certain that’s likely now. More to come.

Phase II overview requires some going back into the history (over 2 years!) and some other deadlines got in the way but it’s coming!

From the release: “It was Mozart’s only completed clarinet quintet, and is one of the earliest and best-known works written especially for the instrument. It remains exceptionally popular today due to its lyrical melodies, with the second movement the best known.”
