Minus Manhattan

This is hilarious. Japanese artist Tatzu Nishi is building scaffolding around the 70 foot base of the Christopher Columbus statue at the entrance to Central Park in New York City. He is then building a living room around the statue. Visitors can climb the stairs and check out the previously inaccessible statue from close-up. 

The project is called “Discovering Columbus” and runs from September 20th to November 18th.

Above: scaffolding being constructed, the artist’s rendition of the living room.
