Restoring 42nd Street Ballroom

For the past few months, we have been working hard to restore George Rhoads’ sculpture 42nd Street Ballroom to its formal glory. This beloved ball machine had been installed at the Port Authority Bus Terminal since 1984 until recently when it was uninstalled and sent to Tucson for restoration. A lot of the devices and track are being repaired and updated but the sculpture’s original theme and sense of whimsy remain the same. Mat Petersen, Lucas Conrad, Nick Moore-Howerton, and Adan Banuelos have been working around the clock to finish the machine so it can be reinstalled in time for the holiday season. #gallery-8 { margin: auto; } #gallery-8 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-8 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-8 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */
