tent sign

The “think tent” at the “Lent Space” lot at Canal St. and Sixth Ave. keeps on rising as work continued into the night on Friday on the enigmatic structure. Hedge fund billionaire George Soros is funding the temporary “public engagement” effort, which is set to go live Wed., Nov. 6, the day after the election. In the tent, and via online, New Yorkers will be able to give voice to their concerns and priorities as a new administration is set to come in. More information will be available, as this sign, above, on the space’s fence states, on Facebook at “Talking Transition.” Trinity Real Estate owns the lot, and eventually plans to build a high-rise residential tower with a school in its base there.
