    There Goes the DCA Sun

    Is it true DCA's hideous golden hubcap sun is being walled off today for removal?

    Apologies if this was posted elsewhere.

    It should be going down very soon, I knew of a friend who was bidding on the project back in the end of July/Begging of August.

    Re: There Goes the DCA Sun

    Thanks for the pic of the sun with the walls up.

    I don't have a lot of sadness for the passing of the hubcap... though this means that the California letters are soon to disappear, and that gets me for some reason. I'm going to miss them a lot more than the sun.

    Re: There Goes the DCA Sun

    The whole entrance from the letters on is flat and ugly. I will admit that standing back and viewing the entrance from where about the monorail track is, it looks pretty artistic and cool, but once you get past the letters, it all melds into a bland plaza. The fountain and hubcap never cut it as a "hub" for me. The new entrance looks extremely promising. Can't wait to see them tear it apart and get rid of its single dimension feeling.
