Art. Sofa. Rope.

Madison Square Park is hosting a site-specific art installation, Red, Yellow, Blue, by NY-based artist Orly Genger this summer.  It's worth a visit and, although no climbing is allowed (apparently you can inch up on your back as demonstrated by the second photo below), one can sit (or lie) quite comfortably in the valleys of each of the three undulating rope sculptures.  Depending on who is doing the talking, the piece is art, a great place to sit, or enough rope to cover the island of Manhattan.  It's a wonderful addition to the park and I, for one, will be sad to see it go come early September.
