Today,I traveled to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park to look at 7,000 yellow Pinwheels. The pinwheels — which range from 6 to 11 inches in size — span 2¹/₂ acres of the Rose Garden, a quiet corner of the park.
Students from 40 city schools were asked to submit designs. Several of these were printed and folded into the installation’s bright yellow pinwheels, which are made from a renewable material generated from crushed stones.
The installation is going to close on July 17th.
Interesting enough was that I have never been to Prospect Park in all the years I have visited and lived in NYC. Now that I have broken the ice, I will venture to other boroughs as well.
