Good Work, New York
First, the subway stairwell handrail was broken, then a few days later it was repaired. Great.
See how easy that was? If someone knocks something over, consider putting the exact same thing back up in its place, and fast. Don't wait a decade, have meetings, politicize the process, and leave an open hole. Better yet: go ahead with putting up something significantly better -- but do it fast, like when the Pre-Parthenon was destroyed.
See? Art history has valuable lessons in it.
