Coney Island Sunshine


Friday, April 09, 2010

The New York subway system has one of the best environmental designs of recent years: Coney Island's Stillwell Avenue terminal, one block from the Atlantic Ocean, is topped by a state-of-the-art photovoltaic glass roof. Kurt checked it out with architect Greg Kiss.

I came here to say the same as LisaT. An earth day show and ordering a bottle of water?

How ironic that in the Coney Island piece, the importance of transit is noted, as is the importance of sustainable design and development, and yet both participants order hot dogs, even one with bacon and cheese. Animal agribusiness is the number one contributor to environmental destruction--cognitive dissonance much?
