Trying to solve Cube, not Rubiks
Susan Stetzer, district manager of Community Board 3, said she is following up reports about the disabled Cube sculpture at Astor Pl. The public, spinnable sculpture donated to the city in 1967, officially known as The Alamo, first was rocking dangerously on its base when it was spun, Jim Mosaic Man Power recently reported. Shortly thereafter, it got stuck and no longer can be spun. Were trying to get it inspected to see if its not dangerous, Stetzer said, adding she went by to check it out herself. Shes been in contact with the city Department of Transportation about it, she said.
