Since mid-September, Broadway between 60th and 168th Streets has been graced with twenty-five works from sculptor Tom Otterness. You may be familiar with the round figures of Otterness's work from the 14th Street A/C/E station, as well as Battery Park City, Park Avenue, and and 42nd Street (above the Hilton). Gothamist loves the idea of sculptures peeking out in urban places; it's makes our walks so much nicer.

Newsday on how it took years to put this show together; the president of the Broadway Mall Association, which keeps up those benches and green areas in the middle of Broadway, had to get the approval of community boards all along the 100 blocks.
