Last Exit

The far west side is one big construction zone these days as the 7 Line Extension continues.   
But even smaller projects on the ground signal change.  The photo above is the former Exit Art Space now being transformed into the Sean Kelly Gallery for a fall opening on the corner of 10th Avenue and 36th Street.  Will the Chelsea gallery scene continue pushing upwards into the west 30s  and 40s? Who knows.  Many are predicting economic ruin just around the corner.
Meanwhile,  to the south the Hudson Yards project will soon occupy all the remaining open air in Manhattan as the vapidity of the east 30s threatens to be replicated on the west 30s.
