 Christopher Street (PATH station) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Christopher Street PATH station, opened on February 25, 1908, is located on Christopher Street (just west of Hudson Street), on the west side of Greenwich Village in the New York City borough of Manhattan.
After the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks which resulted in the destruction of the vital World Trade Center PATH station, the Christopher Street station experienced serious overcrowding; in fact, the station became so busy that the Port Authority had to make it an exit-only station during the morning rush hour.
The Port Authority planned to build a second entrance at Christopher and Bedford Street (a block and a half east of the current entrance), to ease overcrowding at the station, but local opposition effectively killed the project.

 Barrymore
Christopher Plummer, after all, may have been born and raised in Canada, but he trained at the Royal Shakespeare Company, and so he is a stickler for the King's English, a bit of a contemporary Henry Higgins.
Christopher Plummer remembers being mesmerized as a young man by John Barrymore, both as an actor and as a larger-than-life personality, full of dash, daring and drink.
Christopher Plummer's one-man tour de force "Barrymore" at the Auditorium Theatre is unquestionably the finest piece of acting Denver has seen for some time, encased in an insightful play written by William Luce and directed by Gene Saks.

 173 and 176 Perry Street New York by Richard Meier and Partners
As a result of the white framing, and Meier's understated touch, 173 and 176 Perry Street are decisively elegant though contrary to the materials used in surrounding structures.
The viewer can easily see that the buildings take only minimal steps to improve or refine design standards that are commonly found in buildings throughout the world, and thus Meier manages to inject only a small amount of his decisive style into the structures.
As a result, what makes the towers particularly unusual in Manhattan is the fact that such buildings are rarely available in New York City as living spaces, not their design.
