Arts! Entertainment! Other! Since 2002!
Were you in the Murray Hill - Kips Bay area when you took this photo?
were you outside my ex-therapist's office/home on 30th street between lex and 3rd?
Uh...Scottie? Are you swooping in?
No, Debbie and Scott, I wasn't. Sorry.
Okay, let's start at the beginning. Manhattan?
The Village is cooler than your previous guess, Debbie!
Were you North of 42nd St?
Yes, I was north of the Deuce!
Were you North of 110th St?
No...but I can't resist taking a request!
Are you above 59th St? Do I get another song?
No, I wasn't above 59th Street. And no, not another song for you right now. Sorry.
But stay tuned for Guitarchiks!
WEre you on the East side?
Yes, but you're still not getting another song.
Is this in the UN vicinity? What does "the chef" think?
who were on 50th street, near first avenue!
Debbie, your guess isn't as warm as Scott's.
Are you east of 2nd ave?
No, Gary, I wasn't.
Rwanda Sculpture Project?Thanks Debbie for your curiosity in my guesses!
Is it in the 50s?
No, chef! Yes, chef!
Is it west of 3rd ave?
Is it north of 55th?
Were you at 57th and Madison? Isn't there a Calder there?
The IBM building cafe?
Wrong Calder. It's the Seagram Building between 52nd and 53rd street on Park Ave.
It was a trick. I think it isn't a Calder, now that I've double checked. But we'll let Mr. WWI explain.
OK, I triple checked and can find a reference to artist being Calder (duh). Meanwhile, I'll stick with my location guess, and appologize for the digression.
Yes...no...no...no...yes...er, ah...yes!I was indeed at the Seagram Building, the celebrated Mies van der Rohe/Philip Johnson edifice at 385 Park Avenue between 52nd Street and 53rd Street. And, despite the fact that Wikipedia currently claims that the work in the plaza is one of Roy Lichtenstein's Brushstroke sculptures, it is actually Alexander Calder's mobile Ordinary (1969). (If memory serves, this is the second Wikipedia error noted thus far in the WWI competition.)I strongly encourage you to make repeated visits to see Ordinary, which is to grace the Seagram space from June 3, 2006 through June 2, 2007. I'm certainly not alone in my enthusiasm.So hearty congrats to The Other David--the first contestant to get hot by getting Calder! And thanks to all the participants for making this challenge a lively one!!
