Gangsta Wrapper

The Lady in White
Looks like Christo is at again. This time sheathing the Brooklyn Bridge roadway in white. At least it's not orange.

I dutifully walked through The Gates  in Central Park, Christo and Jeanne-Claude's last NYC project in 2005. Fine. Bit of a tourist trap. It did inspire a great work of guerrilla art, though, when a guy in a Boston Whaler with a replica Christo Gate pursued Robert Smithson's (d. 1974) Living Island being pulled by a tugboat. The captain of the Rachel Marie was not amused. He kept waving him off. At least he didn't have to return fire.
Hey, Park, wait for me!
