Duck Soup

Quack, Quack (Photo: CNN)
Giant (54') rubber duck in Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour, the work of artist Florentijn Hofman. The best news is that its next stop will be somewhere in the U.S. Could we hope for the East River (or West River, as we call it in Queens)? Imagine the children of Maspeth and Greenpoint lined up along the Newtown Creek to wave, point, and cry "Ducky, Ducky!"

If we don't get it, how about a 32' inflatable blue gorilla for the no man's land where the LIE peels off the eastbound BQE?

  1. Too bad the new Pithecus is so squat. A big (well, small) disappointment.
