Arthur Wood's wife Cynthia, co-creator of the famed Broken Angel, died recently of cancer. I don't know how I missed the story, posted on Gothamist in late January. A note posted outside the house explains that the couple met at age 18 while ice skating at Wollman Rink, and it was love at first sight.
Things have been quiet over at the Angel in the last few years, after the fire and the code issues, and the talk of a condo conversion.
Having lost loved ones from cancer, my thoughts are with their family.
I remember being able to see the fantastical structure from my window when I first moved here, and how it took me ages to figure out what and where it was exactly.
