CementlandMarch 14, 2010
Cementland is a project that has been in the works for ten years. Ever since I first stumbled upon this New York Times article a year or so ago, I have been curious about the project. And what a cool project it is. With the City Museum already in place as one of the region’s most unique and popular attractions, Bob Cassilly still wants to contribute more.
Cementland is Bob Cassilly continuing to endorse reuse. It is possible to create something totally new and exciting without starting from scratch.
With nothing more to go off of than rumors (landscaping work is being done at Cementland) and a few dated articles from around the internet (ranging from the detailed 2000 article in the Riverfront Times, to accounts of “Miss Rockaway Armada,” a crazy boat trip up the Mississippi which culminated in a rock concert on the river at Cementland), I actually think this project could open to the public in the near future. I really hope it does because I really want to go!
A new website has been launched for Cementland. Bookmark it and check back for updates in the coming months.
