Back in 2005-2006, we set up a “shame cam” to capture and live-stream the facade destruction of 2 Columbus Circle. Now, ten years later, we created a time lapse of the process as Edward Durell Stone’s quirky piece of modernism was scaffolded, cocooned, and sliced up during its conversion to the new Museum of Arts and Design. 

Unfortunately, we do not get to see the final product in this video because the construction of 15 Central Park West blocks the view, but it is still worth the watch. You can also see the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade roll by around the 00:52 mark.
