Mayor Bloomberg announced the winner of the Sukkah City competition. Feh. That’s not a warm, inclusive sukkah. That sukkah does not say “hachnasat orchim” to me. That sukkah says “If you steal my wheat I will stab you.”
However, Bloomberg said it won by only 8% of the vote, so I’d like to think some of my favorites did well too.
“if you steal my wheat I will stab you” — Too true.
I like the “Single Thread” too, though I don’t see how it could be untangled for disassembly. The fluffy plants on the roof might be phragmites, or maybe pampas grass. It can’t be too exotic, because I think the same stuff is on my 3-year-old’s shoebox sukkah from nursery school.
