    :The work required that 46th Street (by the Arch) had to be closed at certain times, which meant the Department of Transportation got involved. “Therefore it took longer than expected,” Conley said".

    LOL take that MTA!

    i advocate that only one color at a time be selected so as to make more of a visual impact.

    Hopefully they'll find a way to light up the name "Sunnyside" on the arch. People zipping by in a car or by subway probably have no idea what neighborhood it is.
