We hope the human-scale snow globe in Bryant Park is well heated, because we'd hate to have to endure today's rain, snow, and ice, in a plastic bubble if it weren't. The installation in the park west of the New York Public Library's main branch in Manhattan is a promotion for tourism to Ontario, Canada. Above, one can see a Canadian practicing his hockey stick work to pass the time. Ice sculpting and Mounties are other attractions, in addition to the human fish bowl. Given current weather conditions, we're not sure we'd like to travel further up to the Great White North, but we do like the promotion.
