Changes to the area near the Kilkenny Shop

Just noticed today some recent changes to the plaza area around the Kilkenny
Shop,Setanta Centre at Nassau St.

The open space here, which led from Nassau St up some steps to rejoin the cross street, is now mostly terminated - by a filling in of most of the arches. There is now a new shop up there.

While this was never a very succesful public space, despite the nice mural which is now partly hidden behind the CD shop selling to the tourists that has been there for some time, do have a look at it now and see how it has been altered and how the view has been changed.

It always suffered from being windswept and wet. What it needs is the Kilkenny shop to open its cafe are to the street from that site and place seating out in the area. In the summer, I would imagine its a nice suntrap, and its away from traffic.

There is less traffic now, but vans making deliveries and cabs for the Setanta mandarins and cars for the tiny carpark still hare through that little portico...
