Scenes from The Streets of New York City

New York
There's no better New York City experience than a jackhammer right outside your hotel, right? Here are some more shots from a week in NYC:

"Everywhere you look!" I tell ya, the fan base for "Full House" is unstoppable.

New artwork in Madison Square Park. It's the 500-foot long "Fata Morgana" by New York-based artist Teresita Fern├índez. The park's Conservancy calls it "the largest and most ambitious outdoor sculpture to date. The outdoor sculpture, which will consist of 500 running feet of golden, mirror-polished discs that create canopies above the pathways around the Park’s central Oval Lawn.

Seeing this key art for "San Andreas" on the streets of New York surprised me. Sure, it's been 14 years, but are New Yorkers OK with seeing a photo of a plume of smoke rising from a burning skyscraper?

More public art! Currently on display in Rockefeller Center, where the Christmas tree is positioned during the holidays: Thomas Houseago's new commission "Masks (Pentagon)." Details:

Thomas Houseago’s new commission Masks (Pentagon) will be on view on the plaza April 28 – June 12. The exhibit, organized by Public Art Fund and Tishman Speyer, will be free and open to the public. Designed specifically for Rockefeller Plaza, Masks (Pentagon) consists of five masks ranging in height from 14.5 to 16.5 feet, each of which reflects a different approach to the stylized representation of the human face, from the clearly recognizable to the highly abstracted. As each colossal face looks out towards the surrounding cityscape, the spaces between them become “doorways” that give access to an interior “room”. From inside, the mask’s eyes will create windows that frame views of the landscape and skyscrapers of Midtown Manhattan.

Greg Kelly on Good Day NY: Always a highlight.

I saw one Broadway show, and I recommend it: "Hand to God," about a demented hand puppet. It's as bizarre as it sounds, but an interesting character study. Until the weirdly bloody ending.
