This little piggy flew to New York City! We haven’t been to the Big Apple since 2000 and it was great to visit this exciting city again. After we checked into our hotel we decided to take a little walk to get a bite to eat. We got directions to an Irish pub and set off. While walking to the pub we realized we were very near Central Park. As we got closer, the orange Gates came into view. We had heard that the gates were coming down so we were quite surprised to see them still up. “The Gates, Central Park, New York” is a temporary work of art by Christo and Jeanne-Claude.
We had seen photos of The Gates and didn’t think they looked like much. But in person they really are quite beautiful. I’d recommend seeing them but I don’t think they will be around for much longer.
