The rotting-decaying piers of yesteryear along the West Side of Manhattan are becoming unwitting pieces of art, according to the Times. Artists and city officials love them, like the pier that landscape architect Thomas Balsley affectionately calls, "spaghetti pier," at West 62nd. Reporter Fred A. Bernstein also notes that the "random" deformation of the piers brings to mind modern architecture that tries to achieve that spontaneity of form via computers; Frank Gehry's new Walt Disney Concert Hall in L.A. is one example. The piers will most likely be demolished, so on this lovely weekend, go take a look at them while you can.
