Day 112: Spring Fever

Day 112: Spring Fever

Hello fair brickfans. Now, we know that we’ve been gettin’ ya hyped up about the 25th of April for quite some time. And we know that the 25th has come and gone. And we’re also well aware that all "major construction" activity is not quite done. And well, it stinks, but we still think the project is really wrapping up quite nicely. Like we said in Friday’s post, everything should be cleared up by the actual May 1st deadline (except for the Landmark, which totally isn’t their fault).

Anyway. We went out and got some nifty bricktures today during our morning walk. Of course, it’s now afternoon and some of these pictures might be moot. Those boys have been moving so fast, the whole Mall might be solid gold by the time Brick Watch gets out of this office.

Two pictures, for your pleasure:

The crossing at Second Street West.

The crossing at Third Street.

You know, we hate to be naysayers, but doesn’t this look a bit disarrayed? One week to go, boys! Get a move on!

Stay tuned tomorrow when Brick Watch puts forth just a little more effort. In the mean time, what’s up with all this pollen? BW could barely enjoy our brunch yesterday without debris flying from the trees into our Eggs Benedict. Anyone else have that same problem?
