"Floating Island," Robert Smithson's Central Park on the water, had a special visitor on Thursday when a would-be Christo pursued the moving art installation on a motorboat topped with a saffron gate. Don't worry though, the apparently very serious motor-boaters never made it on to the island.
In the meantime, the 130-ton "Floating Island" makes its last rounds today and tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.. A PDF of general times for where and when to see it can be found here. Have you seen the Island? What did you think of it?
