This just in: tomorrow morning at about 7am, see if you can get a view of the East River. Take a look and you just might see the Lieb House, designed by post-modern architect Robert Venturi, floating its way up the river...

The house, originally located in Barnegat, New Jersey, is being moved to Glen Cove, Long Island. Part of the trip involves floating it up the East River on a barge. The house is being moved to save it from demolition and will be used as guest quarters in its new location. For more on the extraordinary move, visit Storefront for Art and Architecture.
