Does anyone question why a "renovation" of this small space requires TWO YEARS and $6.8 million? I expect that it will soon be a gathering place for vagrants ... as before.

click on the picture at the top of the story, then you can scroll through images that include the electrical box. (in the print edition, there's a picture of it, as well).
