Mural of the story: Stuy students touch up a public artwork with a touching history | DOWNTOWN EXPRESS

The whimsical Chambers Street mural “Alice on the Wall” was painted 17 years ago by Stuyvesant High School students shortly after they returned to school after the traumatic 9/11 terrorist attacks. Since then, giving the mural a touch up has been an annual ritual for Stuy students, but this year, they decided to add some new flourishes, such as flowers and flamingoes.

The Howard Hughes Corporation is considering expanding a state-of-the-art sound system installed at its rooftop concert venue to other parts of the entertainment complex, after locals complained about noise coming from its Riverdeck watering hole.Howard Hughes Corporation
