May is nothing but a distant, shimmering memory now, and we left even June behind. The best season of the year, Gemini season, is well behind us, and we are deep into Cancer season. Summer is entering that boring lull as the Fourth of July approaches and we are all starting to get tired of whatever we are doing, whether that be more classes, working, nothing, or sweating. Do you miss us yet? We sure miss our readers. Here’s what the first half of the summer has brought to Morningside Heights.
McBain Hall is falling apart and there is scaffolding around the exterior now.
Butler’s first-floor women’s bathrooms have new doors on their stalls so the awkward gap no longer exists.
The Columbia campus shuttle is switching to electric buses this week.
South Lawn is being redone again.
Amigos is being replaced by e’s Bar, which, according to their Twitter, is “a neighborhood joint with good food, good drinks, fun games and smiling people. Reminiscent of the dive bars we grew up in…for grown ups.” Sounds like Mel’s, A&C, and Hex&Co birthed a lovechild on 112th.
