Just got this info from my dear Sphinxku, a newyorker with hip hairstyle ;)

The Gates
Project for Central Park, New York City
Christo and Jeanne-Claude
short description from the site:

For those who will walk through The Gates,
following the walkways, and staying away from the grass,
The Gates will be a golden ceiling creating warm shadows.
When seen from the buildings surrounding Central Park,
The Gates will seem like a golden river appearing and
disappearing through the bare branches of the trees
and will highlight the shape of the footpaths.

Nicky, if you read this, you should go there...!
I believe you'll make nice photos!
Wishing to be there too...
