When Rachel from Life Unsweetened asked earlier this week if any of her readers ever play tourist in their own city my answer emphatically, YES! I live in New York City and I love being a tourist, even for, as Thursday evening turned out, 20 minutes on my way to another event. When I saw Naomi of the tremendously popular Love Taza visit the new art installation in Madison Square Park with her littles I knew I had to head over and see it for myself!
It is exactly one mile from my front door to the SE corner of Madison Square Park and as any New Yorker knows, you are welcomed to the quaint area by Shake Shake. I reluctantly sped past the tasty eatery to see Madison Square Park Conservancy’s new installation for Spring and Summer 2013 by New York-based artist Orly Genger. The monumental installation is entitled Red, Yellow and Blue and features over 1.4 million feet of painted hand-knotted nautical rope. Take a look!
The rope exhibit really was spectacular and if you have time to to go see Red, Yellow, and Blue in Madison Square Park I would definitely recommend it and it will be in NYC until it heads to Boston on September 8th!
P.S. I am really excited to announce that next week is going to be the second Past Adventures takeover featuring six of my favorite trips, from the map can you guess where they are?
