Just a quick post to share a new photo… While we were visiting Forest Hills recently, my kids wanted to create posters to protest destruction and “save the atom smasher!” to hang on the fence there! We didn’t manage to do that, but the image above was inspired by their ideas.
Sadly, however, as you can see in the photo, the atom smasher is at least half-way destroyed. For those not familiar with the situation, it was knocked down by the developer who claimed interest in saving it. Read the Backstory or this firsthand history of the Research Labs for more info.
I took updated photos in April and July so I’m working on an album to share in a future post (probably in September, as summer and fieldwork mean not much computer time!).
