Shrouded in a Shroud

Things happen quickly in the East Village. Some things, that is. For instance, this shroud was not around this building on Avenue C and East 6th Street yesterday, and today it is.

What doesn't happen quickly is these scaffoldings coming down. I expect this to be up for years.

The sign at the corner shows the date of the permit end:

Expiration: Unknown.

July 1, 20xx. No year is recorded. One day it will just seem as if the scaffolding has always been there, and when it finally comes down, it will be as if I'm seeing the building behind it for the first time.
