As a late little birthday shout-out to Anil , here's a picture of Takashi Murakami's big black balloons - "balls" - at Rockefeller Center. Kind reader Bruce sent us this picture but we'll try to get a more "revealing" picture of the balloons in front of the GE Building later AND just sent us this other picture (left, click to enlarge - hee hee) as well! Happy Belated Birthday, Anil.

Gothamist went to see Mr. Pointy the other day.
