We’re reinstating Friday Links this week (after our brief hiatus during the Berlin Lab run) with this gorgeous time-lapse of Manhattan. Its varied perspectives make it one of the best we’ve seen.

Yep, we’re envious if you live near Madeira, Portugal, St. Louis, Missouri, Berlin, or Sydney. Or any of the other places where the world’s ten greatest (and stunning) public pools are located.
How little could it cost to make a bike? Try nine dollars. Bicycle enthusiast Izhar Gafni has created a fully functioning bike from nine-dollars worth of cardboard, able to carry a riders weighing up to 485 pounds.
This cave-like installation made completely of recycled milk cartons is part of its own game at the Olympics. As visitors walk through the created landscape, they can listen to recordings of Moravians and Londoners talking about waste and the urban environment. Moravia is a neighborhood in Medellin, Colombia, which was built on the city’s landfill.
A massive pedestrian bridge made from a former railroad bridge (c. 1895) is under construction and expected to open next spring. Once complete, the one-mile-long bridge will allow pedestrians and cyclists to cross the Ohio River between Louisville, KY, and Jeffersonville, IN.
