In the winter of 2005, an exhibition in Central Park, New York City (which by the way is next to two other place that I have highlighted – the Louis Vuitton store on Fifth Avenue and Trump Tower) attracted global attention. It was called The Gates, Central Park, New York City, 1979–2005. The exhibition that essentially covered parts of the park with saffron color fabric in very attractive patterns was the brainchild of Christo and Jeanne-Claude.
As many as 7,500 gates were set up at 12-foot intervals along 23 miles of pedestrian walkways. It was a free event and millions visited the exhibition – many of them several times because the view was so different on a snowy day than on a bright sunny day. Well, the day I went it was extremely cold but no snow on the ground. So if you are in New York City, you never know what surprises await you. So be adventurous!
