Exploring Milstein Hall

16 08 2011

So, fortunately for me, I’m not the only person out there who has an interest in Cornell construction projects. By good fortune, I happened to receive a series of emails from a newly minted Cornell graduate, “BB”, who took the time and opportunity to explore the nearly complete Milstein Hall and pass along some photos to this blog. For that I am thankful, as my trips to Ithaca have become fewer and further between. While I am glad for the photos, I’m still going to push the token disclaimers that I do not encourage or condone the exploration of unfinished buildings, due to a safety risk and legal concerns with trespassing. Also, while he is kind enough to share the photos here, they are his property, with all associated rights and privileges. I would encourage those that want to use his photos to contact him directly.

For those who wish they could answer nature’s call while on a spaceship…

They’re not even stalls. They’re more like bathroom pods.

I’m looking at this photo, and immediately, “The Imperial March” pops into my head.

Very cool to see. It looks like BB did in fact take a solo, unsupervised tour of Milstein at night, but the guys who manage the construction are happy to provide individual and also group tours. I’ve been getting updates on the project since I’m a grad student based in West Sibley and the construction can sometimes affect our schedules, and the progress has been interesting to watch. Another cool way to see the construction is in Sibley 208 — it hangs over the parking lot right behind Milstein.
