New York City: Some of my Favourite Public Art pieces..
At Madison Square Park
Gift of Luxembourg to United Nations..
United Nations Plaza..
Sculpture by Marisol Escobar [ Dedicated 1991]
The bronze sculpture was inspired by an actual photograph taken by Greman attackers as the American marines clung to their sinking vessel..
Installed following the 1987 stock market crash as a symbol of the "strength and power of the American people".. by the sculptor [it was the rtist's idea, not the city's..]
Very interesting story..
In front of HSBC bldg. on Broadway..
Federal Hall, Wall Street..
Credit Lyonnais Building, 1301 Avenue of the Americas
[53rd Street & 6th Ave], NYC..
