WHERE WAS DEBBIE? By some crazy coincidence, it's somewhere in the five boroughs! Naturally, the situation calls for the puzzle format. Leave your guesses in the comments section.

Was she at the redish "9" of tne 9 West 57th building? (the 9 is art, right?)

David Marc Fischer said...

Ja, Gary--it's the nine!

As Debbie writes (with links added by me):

"It's the 'Nine' in front of the Solow Building at 9 W. 57th St designed by Chermayeff of Chermayeff and Geismar who also are famous for many logos such as Mobil, TimeWarner Cable, Victory Theater, Rockefeller Center, PBS and many, many more that I can't think of at the moment.

"Here's what Wikipedia says about the sculpture: 'The large red sculpture of the digit 9 in front of the building was included in the project as a response to the complaints that the building's sloping reflecting walls revealed unappealing sides of the neighboring historic buildings that were previously obscured. The brightly colored sculpture was to distract the eyes of passersby from noticing these walls. This famous New York sculpture was designed by graphic artist Ivan Chermayeff.'

"I've always loved this sculpture, ever since I was a kid."

Isn't that sweet? Expect to see more of Debbie's 9 in times to come!
