Paper Terminal-60
Did they actually mean to suggest that Atlantic Terminal was MORE of a terrorist attraction then is Penn Station in Manhattan, the 8th Avenue entrance to which is opposite the main Post Office? Me thinks someone got a fat contract for even fatter stones. Now the MTA needs to replace the bland, unimaginative "sculpture" overhanging the balcony in the terminal with a mosaic. I never found them to be "intrusive" or objectionable. How about improving service, or keeping the stations clean and well maintained? I wasn't a huge fan of the big old bollards, but I am even less of a fan of spending any money whatsoever on such a cosmetic concern when the MTA is short on dough and quite likely to raise fares in the near term. If people didn't like the concrete thingys that much, let those people raise the loot to replace them.I hope that someone with decision or influence in the design of the outdoor space watches this - - or reads the book it's based on ("The Social Uses of Small Urban Spaces"). There is a grandeur about them, however unintentioned. Even if the state ever gave the MTA a subsidy on a par in percentage of operating budget terms with what other transit agencies get, this would be a project that made the lowest priority list. A counter-terrorism expert even weighed in, saying that the bollards were “overkill” and “excessive and ugly.” Nevertheless the bollards remained — until now.

“The new, smaller bollards are less intrusive and more acceptable to the community,” Arena said.

The bollard backtrack is a major victory for critics — including residents, aesthetes, security experts, local officials and this newspaper — who recognized that the coffin-like roadblocks were not only unsightly, but far exceeded the NYPD’s security guidelines for protecting “high-risk” sites.

Keyboard/printer terminals that came later included the IBM 2741 (1965) or "Visual Display Units" (VDUs), and used no CPU, instead relying on individual logic gates or very primitive LSI chips.

Nevertheless, they quickly became extremely popular Input-Output devices on many different types of computer system once several suppliers gravitated to a set of common standards: The Datapoint 3300 from Computer Terminal Corporation was announced in 1967 and shipped in 1969, making it one of the earliest stand-alone display-based terminals.

“There’s a lot of police here anyway,” said Abdul Karim, a vendor who’s sold hot dogs outside of the station for the past three years.

“It’s very safe.” How could the LIRR ever justify using these ugly monsters? With all the other problems the MTA has, I think the bollards should be at the end of the "to do" list. The removal of the "ugly stones" is considered a triumph when so many areas of the subway still require substantial improvement in regards to accessibility, service, and safety.“There’s nothing aesthetically pleasing about the bollards.” The MTA would not provide details of the plan, but a new rendering reveals several dozen three-foot-high bollards stretching around the corner of Hanson Place and Atlantic Avenue at the terminal’s main entrance.Spaced approximately four feet apart, the proposed stainless steel cylinders — which resemble the bollards seen in front of international consulates and other high-profile buildings — are far less obtrusive than the existing barriers.Early terminals were inexpensive devices but very slow compared to punched cards or paper tape for input, but as the technology improved and video displays were introduced, terminals pushed these older forms of interaction from the industry.A related development was timesharing systems, which evolved in parallel and made up for any inefficiencies of the user's typing ability with the ability to support multiple users on the same machine, each at their own terminal.Councilwoman Letitia James (D–Fort Greene) hailed the news.The transit agency “recognized the errors of its ways,” James said.An "intelligent" terminal does its own processing, usually implying a microprocessor is built in, but not all terminals with microprocessors did any real processing of input: the main computer to which it was attached would have to respond quickly to each keystroke.The term "intelligent" in this context dates from [email protected] - that's the problem - there needs to be more seating space, and seating space done right. Check out the video if you have the time, to see how public seating really brings an outdoor space alive.
