The next time you forget your ID and get turned away from Butler, remember: when Argentine President Cristina Kirchner came to visit, campus security apparently refused to let her NYPD escort enter Low. The officer, probably grateful to escape, instead took the opportunity to snap a picture of the steps.
More common, but also more mysterious, was the sudden appearance of a film trailer at the corner of 110th and Broadway. Internet and parking meter searches did not turn up any clue as to the production being filmed, nor as to if Chipotle or Vitamin Shoppe (the two closest businesses) have managed to parlay their sterilized-chain-store atmospheres into acceptable filming locations. Both would certainly be cleaner than last week’s trailer stop.
