Product Description
M-07: "Urbanism 003" by Medium

Manhattan Community Board 7 represents an area between 59th Street and 110th Street, and between Central Park West and the Hudson River. The area is equal in length and slightly wider than Central Park, with an irregular edge beyond West End Ave.

The Upper West Side contains few monuments. It is a consistent expression of the Commissioner’s Plan as it has been developed over the past two centuries. It is iconic precisely as a generic backdrop to New York lifestyles that have become engrained in the public consciousness.

Like Seinfeld, which, through the 1990s, helped to restore the mainstream appeal of New York, our souvenir represents an essential quality of Manhattan without relying on a familiar roster of monumental structures.

A souvenir derived from architecture typically depends, for its legibility, on its representation of a singular object–a building or monument–and particularly of the elevational silhouette of the object. Our souvenir has no distinct profile in plan or elevation. It is coextensive with the physical form of the Upper West Side.

Our souvenir is an exaggerated extrusion of the grid of “public” space that emerges simultaneously with the extrusion of the grid of “private” lots in the development of the Commissioner’s Plan. This void, and the dense aggregations of vertical surfaces that delimit it, are defining physical features of Manhattan generally, and the Upper West Side particularly.

Our souvenir is presented only in fragments. These fragments are not buildings or possible buildings. Like any souvenir, our souvenir demonstrates a strategy of representation, or a means of translating information and materializing abstractions.

The word “souvenir” is a derivative of the French souvenir, meaning “memory” (n.) or “to remember" (v.) Our souvenir could be considered a physical memory–a fossil, subjectively constructed–of the Upper West Side.
