PHOTOS: NYC Landmark Becomes Living Room In the Sky
High above a bustling intersection in midtown Manhattan an art project is underway to transform one of the city's landmarks, a 70-foot high statue of Christopher Columbus built in 1892. The project is the work of Japanese artist Tatzu Nishi who is building a contemporary living room surrounding the statue in Manhattan’s Columbus Circle. When it opens Sept. 20, the free exhibit, called “Discovering Columbus,” will allow visitors to climb stairs to the living room for a close-up look at the statue and a rare view of the city and neighboring Central Park.
