Welcome to the fifth day - and fifth edition - of ArchNewsNow.com!

Well...Monday is it! The newsletter will begin e-mailing to subscribers! (It's a simple, no-hassle subscription form, so if you haven't subscribed...please do).

Manhattan was breathtaking from the 65th floor of Rockefeller Center yesterday...at least the view northward (looking south still brings a lump to my throat and a skip in my heart). Apparently, Ciprianni's (formerly the Rainbow Room) has changed its almost-never-open-to-the-public policy, and now allows civilians in any day - after 5 pm. Definitely worth the trip...for the sunset views alone.

The 5th Annual Business Week/Architectural Record Awards event was...an event...lots of industry notables and only a few technical glitches.

ArchNewsNow.com will be in your mailbox on Monday (unless you haven't subscribed yet). Please spread the news!
