Peek Inside the Department of Sanitation's New Geometric Salt Shed in Tribeca

Erik Torkell from the always excellent neighborhood blog Tribeca Citizen recently went on a tour of one of his favorite TriBeCa buildings. Not a loft, a skyscraper or monument, rather the newly constructed Department of Sanitation Salt Shed on Spring Street.

I love this building! But you knew that. I geeked out on the control panels embedded in the exterior, and I was delighted by how much the salt reminded me of Zabriskie Point in Death Valley National Park. But even a fan of the shed might have to admit that the best part is what you can observe from the street. I guess I hadn’t been over there in a while, because this was the first time I’d seen the “illuminated moat.”

Check out the full article for more photos of the Salt Shed and the neighboring Sanitation Garage.
