Anyone in NYC? Nancy? The Gates are opening, a project that took 25 years in the making. Would like to see shots from the FZ perspective. Thanks. Joe

Hey guys, I'm in nyc.

Hopefully I'll get my FZ20 early next week. The VERY first thing I want to shoot is the Gates.

I"ll post photos!

Icaught aglimpse of the what look like an assaultof orangesteel girdlesat the park. Anybody who did notdid not appreciate thatis intended to be a work of 'art' would probably beupset at this unwelcomeeyesore. Then again, allof Cristo's and Jeane Claude's art are Eyesores.Their wrapped art projects are just about as 'artful' as the tarp pulled over thegrass atWimbledon lawn when it rains.

I dunno.. maybe I'm a complete ignoramus when it comes to this kind of art.. but I can think of better ways to spend 20 mil.

I also think this is a complete waste of money. I'm all for public art, but in this case, $20,000,000+ (articles I've read state "at least") could be spentonMUCH better things for this city!Perhaps leavingout a portion and donating say, 2mil to artsprograms in schools... now that would have made more of a statement!

Hopefully,it's lessdeadlier thanpreviouswork,"Killer Umbrellas" (remember that "exhibit?" I believe one guy was killed by a runaway umbrella in a windstorm?)

Regardless,I'll still go gawk ...and at the very least, it motivated me to get my FZ20 purchased!!!
