Tom Otterness Playground Comes To Hell's Kitchen South

I really prefer none, but if I have to choose, I guess I like my Tom Otterness playground sculpture tiny, variegated, slightly political, and in Battery Park City.

And in that respect, Larry Silverstein, the tiny real estate developer, and I differ.

Larry went bonkers for this gigantic bronze playground structure Otterness designed for a public commission competition [he lost], and had one installed in the garden of the desolate rental towers at 42nd & 12th, in the middle of BF Intrepid Chinese UN Mission Hell's Kitchen Nowhere. More power to him, I guess.
