Since the end of October, the facade of 400 State has been illuminated at night. Last week, for the holidays and presumably in preparation for Winter Walk, little lights resembling candles appeared in all the windows. The effect, for anyone driving north on Fourth Street after dark or passing the building on foot, is quite pleasing.
This afternoon, a Gossips reader walking by the building noticed a new development: silver spheres positioned on the lawn. Finding them interesting, he decided to take this picture.
The appearance of the spheres is curious, but what is curiouser is that someone came out of the building as he was taking the picture, declared that taking pictures of these objects which had been placed outside, in the public view, was not allowed, and threatened to call the police.
