Hattie Weber Museum director Dennis Dingemans motions a reporter away from view, over to the back side of the old restrooms in Central Park. There, in the shadows, he demonstrates something surprising.
He reaches out his hand and presses his thumb into where a 1940s addition meets the main restroom building, built in 1937. His thumb presses into a vertical line of putty, revealing the small storage area that could be easy to demolish because the walls are not strongly connected.
