Duration of shadows?


#1

“the shadows cast by tall, slender buildings, which is what most of the buildings going up are, are very brief — maybe they’re 10 minutes in any one place — and cause no negative effect on the flora or fauna of the
park.”

Anyone now if that is 10 minutes total amongst all buildings or 10 minutes per building? Do they actually have a Shadow Czar in NYC who tracks these sort of things?

10 minutes per building, but this will vary during the year between the solstices.

There is no shadow czar. Well, there’s shady czars of various things, but no person responsible for mandating shadowed areas of the park.

But all this business is why I like to spend most of my time on the north end of the park.
